Pinterest bans Trump

After all the above-mentioned websites cracked down on Trump, image sharing and social media service Pinterest also followed the same route. Interestingly, Trump got banned from Pinterest despite not having an account on the platform. According to the website Axios, a spokesperson from Pinterest said that the site has been limiting hashtags related to pro-Trump topics such as #StopTheSteal since around the November election. "Pinterest isn’t a place for threats, promotion of violence or hateful content. Our team is continuing to monitor and removing harmful content, including misinformation and conspiracy theories that may incite violence." For the uninitiated, Pinterest is designed to save and discover information on the internet using images and, on a smaller scale, animated GIFs and videos, in the form of pinboards.
