Looks like Twitter is going to have a big turmoil. Several Republican leaders, including popular Indian-American politician Nikki Haley, have condemned Twitter for permanently deactivating outgoing President Donald Trump’s account, saying that the “US is not China”.

Twitter on Friday permanently suspended Trump’s account; due to the “risk of further incitement of violence”, days after his supporters attacked the US Capitol; and caused the deaths of four civilians and a police officer.

On Friday Haley tweeted, “Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China, not our country.”

“Unbelievable,” said the former US Ambassador to the UN who during a closed-door meeting of the Republican National Committee in Florida on Thursday strongly condemned Trump’s comments inciting supporters to mount an attack on the US Capitol.

The President has not always chosen the right words and his actions post-election will be “judged harshly by history,” she had said in the meeting. US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson, joined Haley in opposing Twitter’s move.

He said, “Silencing a significant number of voters and erasing history us no way to unite us; it only further divides. Big tech and social media platforms want to act like media organisations but don’t want to be held accountable with the rest of the media. Speech should be free whether you agree or not.”

Carson asserted, “United States is not China”. He tweeted, “You want to ban @realDonaldTrump, fine you are a private company, but @Twitter deleting the President’s account which highlights this admin and its history is wrong. @Facebook and @Instagram banning all images from the Capitol riot is a dangerous precedent to set. We aren’t in China.”

Twitter also suspended the account of the Trump campaign and deleted his tweets from the official Twitter handle of the US President. It also suspended the account of Trump campaign digital director Gary Coby;  after he changed his Twitter name to “Donald Trump” and tweeted from the account.

Jason Miller, a longtime Trump adviser tweeted, “Disgusting. Big Tech wants to cancel all 75M @realDonaldTrump supporters. If you don’t think they are coming for you next, you are wrong.”

The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr, likened Twitter’s move to George Orwell’s “1984”.

He tweeted, “We are living Orwell’s 1984. Free-speech no longer exists in America. It dies with big and what’s left is only there for a chosen few. This is absolute insanity!”

In another tweet, he said, “Mao would be proud”. He referred to Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People’s Republic of China.
