Twitter plays whack-a-mole with Trump as it deletes his tweets sent from other people's accounts after he was banned - as he uses @POTUS to say he might build his own platform and warns Twitter is in cahoots with 'Radical Left'

Twitter spent Friday night playing whack-a-mole with President Donald Trump as he tried to address his supporters on the social media platform through other people's accounts, after his own account received a permanent ban.

Trump had initially tried to relay a message to his followers using the official President of the United States Twitter account, but they were deleted within minutes.

In the four-tweet thread, the president claimed that Twitter was not a network for free speech and said that he was now in talks to set up his own social media platform following his suspension.

The POTUS account, which will be handed over to Joe Biden from Inauguration Day, remains active.

However, the Trump 2020 campaign Twitter account was the next to receive a suspension after it tweeted the president’s message amid increasingly desperate efforts to reach his following.

Digital director for the Trump campaign, Gary Coby, was next on the chopping block after he appeared to change his username to Donald J. Trump and in a tweet, offered the handle over to the president's Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino.
