Boy, if Donald Trump were able to use his Twitter account, you know he would have been sharing this news, along with a couple smiley face emoji’s to his 88 million plus followers.

Since the tech giant permanently banned President Trump from their platform Friday, the stock price of Twitter has fallen over 10%, wiping out more than $2.5 billion in cap value.  Facebook and Alphabet also saw declines in their stock price since they followed suit and shut Trump down also.

President Trump was in the top 6 of the most followed people in the world when he was banned, and many of his loyal supporters are fleeing Twitter and canceling their accounts over it. Numerous celebrities and conservatives have reported they have lost thousands, and in some cases hundreds of thousands of followers since last week, which makes it pretty clear that fans of Trump have cancelled their accounts.

Twittter had been President Trump’s No. 1 method of communication. His final two tweets, essentially the ones that got him banned, seemed moderately docile compared to other fiery blasts he was famous for.

This was the second to last message Trump posted. “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

His final tweet was short and simply stated. “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

Since then, Trump has released statements that make it appear he will share big news on a new communication platform he will be allowed on. #anticipation
