It’s not Twitter, but it’s something. (As much as I’d like to see Trump’s Twitter account deleted, if he spent his tweetering time attempting to president, we may all regret it. He might actually draw up his long-promised “tremendous” health care plan, which would almost certainly include liberal references to Funyuns.)
Snap, the parent company of social app Snapchat, said that Donald Trump’s account is no longer being promoted on its Discover media platform. The company cited Trump’s comments regarding “racial violence and injustice” for the decision.
Trump’s Snapchat account remains public, available to any users who subscribe to it or search for it. But Snap has stopped featuring the president’s on Discover as it has previously.
“We are not currently promoting the President’s content on Snapchat’s Discover platform,” a Snap spokeswoman said. “We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover. Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America.”
Well, it’s a step. Of course, if Trump weren’t supposedly president, he’d be consigned to posting on 8chan and/or bathroom stalls. (As if there’s a difference.)
Honestly, I can’t wait for this fool to be permanently deplatformed. Maybe after he’s done pretending to be president he can search for Bigfoot. You know, put his keen conspiracy-spotting mind to some sort of productive use.
