He has also been blocked from posting on Facebook and Instagram at least until his term ends.
"As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me," the president tweeted from the @Potus account instead of his personal @ReadDonaldTrump -- which he almost exclusively used before the ban.
"Twitter may be a private company," the president continued,"but without the government's gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long."

The president went on to say he had predicted his words would be censored. Conservatives have long been complaining that social media sites like Twitter are biased against them in favor of liberals.
"We have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!"
Finally, he accused Twitter of working against free speech and instead "promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely."
"STAY TUNED!" he added.
