Following the news that Twitter banned President Donald Trump’s personal account from its network, “news” spread that conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s account had also been suspended as part of a push against Conservatives.
As reported by USA Today, Limbaugh on Friday deactivated his Twitter account — no doubt in vehement protest, knowing Rush — after Trump’s account was permanently banned.
Radio host Rush Limbaugh’s Twitter account has been deactivated.
Twitter confirmed to USA TODAY that the account wasn’t suspended but “deactivated by the owner.”
Surprisingly, as reported by USA Today, Rush first started his Twitter account this October, three weeks before the election, which he discussed on his October 13 program, saying he hates social media, which he called a “cesspool.”
I cannot disagree with Rush’s assessment. Anyway, he was fired up that day, raring to go.
“We are gonna be doubling down. We’re gonna be doing everything we can in these last three weeks to take the message of preserving the American way of life, to take the message that America is good and decent, it is almost a savior of a country, that it is being maligned, it is being savagely impugned.”
