Donald Trump will be banned forever – even if he runs again, Twitter has said.
The company’s chief financial officer said in the wake of its latest results that the ban is permanent, whatever he does.
“When you are removed from the platform, you are removed from the platform,” Ned Segal told CNBC’s Squawk Box. “Whether you are a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official.
“Remember our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence. And if anybody does that we have to remove them from the service. And our policies don’t allow people to come back.”
Mr Segal confirmed that the rules would apply to any public official that was banned from the service for similar reasons to Mr Trump.
