The Twitter account of Donald Trump It was eliminated after the riots that occurred in the Capitol on January 6, when Joe Biden’s victory in the country’s presidential elections was ratified.

Twitter decided not to give the former official more opportunities and has refused to reestablish the account, even when it has been requested in different ways.
A few days ago, the United States National Archives asked the platform to retrieve the tweets made by the Ex leader on January 6, however, the request was denied. The suspension of the Republican’s account limited his reach, since it was his main route of communication with his followers.
Twitter’s decision was justified by the need to avoid violent incidents that could put the population of the country at risk, Following a careful review of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the surrounding context, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement to violence.
The United States Request
The National Archive of the country requested the recovery of the publications, because the agency is in charge of restoring the posts of the official accounts of the officials, after the end of their mandate. All this in order to prepare a complete record of what was expressed by the former presidents so that Internet users can access them without restriction and share them if they wish.
Despite the response from Twitter, the agency reported that it will continue working to rebuild the archive of the former president’s publications. A spokesperson for the social network said this process would be complicated for the agency, since being a deleted account it would be difficult to find all the publications.
