Former President Trump isn’t the only world leader permanently banned from Twitter. An account connected to the office of Iran’s supreme leader was shut down for good Friday by Twitter, for what appeared to be a death threat direct at former President Trump.
The company said the tweet that got the account banned had violated the company’s “abusive behavior policy.” The account linked to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei posted a photo showing Trump playing golf in the shadow of a giant drone. It clearly appeared to call for an attack on Trump, because it also had the caption saying “Revenge is certain” written in Farsi.
The warning seemed to reference Khameni’s comments last month right before the first anniversary of the U.S. drone attack that killed Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard General.
While this particular account has been permanently banned, there are other Twitter accounts that are thought to be tied to Khamenie’s office that are still active.
