Twitter won’t host Trump’s banned tweets for National Archives

By , Audacy

The National Archives and Records Administration wants to federally preserve former President Donald Trump’s tweets.

But while Twitter is working with the organization on the best way to archive Trump’s tweets, it refuses to resurrect posts from the former commander-in-chief’s banned account on its platform, reports New York Post.

The social media platform permanently banned Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, saying that the president posed a “risk of further incitement of violence.”

Twitter told NY Post that while it is working with the Archives to find a way to preserve Trump’s tweets — “as is standard with any administration transition” — they will not exist via the platform as they normally do.

“Given that we permanently suspended @realDonaldTrump, the content from the account will not appear on Twitter as it did previously or as archived administration accounts do currently, regardless of how NARA decides to display the data it has preserved,” a spokesperson told the outlet.

A spokesperson for the Archives confirmed to the Post that it and the tech giant are “still exploring the best way” to preserve Trump’s tweets.
