After Twitter imposed its permanent ban on Donald Trump, his eldest son went on a rant on the social media platform calling the attention of his followers and MAGA fans to the alleged blatant disregard to free speech. Spreading fear and concern surrounding free speech, the president's son added that it is controlled "by leftist overlords". 

"The world is laughing at America & Mao, Lenin, & Stalin are smiling," he wrote in his tweet, continuing, "Big tech is able to censor the President? Free speech is dead & controlled by leftist overlords. In case I’m next stay connected by simply signing up now at http://DONJR.COM I’ll let u know where I land." 



 

On Friday night, Twitter banned Trump clarifying in a statement that recent Trump tweets amounted to the glorification of violence when read in the context of the riots that took place in the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The president's ban was timely as he continued to peddle false information and call the rioters "very special" people. 

The president's son has since taken to the microblogging site to criticize the ban and asked his supporters to sign up for his newsletter in order to stay updated with Trump ideas. "So the ayatollah, and numerous other dictatorial regimes can have Twitter accounts with no issue despite threatening genocide to entire countries and killing homosexuals etc... but The President of the United States should be permanently suspended. Mao would be proud," he wrote in another tweet. "We are living Orwell’s 1984. Free-speech no longer exists in America. It died with big tech and what’s left is only there for a chosen few. This is absolute insanity!"



 



 

In a long video, he spoke about he lost 100,000 Twitter followers in the past day while liberal democrats have actually seen an increase in their follower count, using the word "purging". "My thoughts this morning on the flagrant assault on free speech that’s happening in America today. Check it out and let me know your thoughts," he shared on his Facebook live broadcast. 



 

Twitter seems to be conducting a cleanup as it also purged accounts connected with the 'QAnon' conspiracy theory, and banned Trump loyalists Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and thousands of others. This may have led to the shrink in follower count that high profile conservative figures and Trump allies have been complaining about, and what Trump Jr spoke about in his aforementioned video. 

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted an image of an analytical tool showing key elected Democrats gaining tens of thousands of followers, while key Republicans were losing them at the same rate. "This is how you create an echo chamber..." Pompeo wrote.



 

After Trump's ban, his loyalists and followers have also abandoned the site and have signed up to Gab and Parler, social media sites that bill themselves as 'free-speech' alternatives to Twitter. 

Gab and Parler are both social networking sites that are controversial alternatives. The Gab app was banned from the Apple and Google app stores years ago amid accusations that it was reportedly a cesspool of racist ideology. Parler, on the other hand, has become a haven for far-right personalities.
