The sooner social media platforms admit they cannot moderate posts by themselves, the better
What a week for tech watchers! Donald Trump, still president of the United States, is no longer allowed to post anything on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and yes, even his favourite Twitter. After originally placing him in a penalty box by suspending him for a few hours, Twitter said early Saturday that its ban was permanent. Trump, who by now is accustomed to Twitter, at first tried to use other Twitter accounts that he had access to, such as @POTUS and @TeamTrump, only to find those suspended as well.
