Trump’s death threat, Iran’s top leader’s Twitter account closed

An account of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme religious leader, has been permanently blocked by Twitter authorities. A video of the assassination of former US President Donald Trump was posted on the Twitter account to avenge the assassination of General Qasim Soleimani. A few days later, on Saturday (January 15), the Twitter account was permanently shut down by the Twitter authorities.

An animation video was posted this week on that account called Khameneisite. It shows a drone attacking Trump. Trump ordered a drone strike in Baghdad two years ago. Iran’s top military commander, General Qasem Solaimani, was killed in the attack.

A Twitter spokesman said the account had been permanently shut down for violating its anti-ban policy.
The main accounts of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, are in operation in different languages. Last year, Twitter shut down another similar account. It also included a post about retaliation against Trump. A video titled “Revenge Is Definite” was also published on Khamenei’s official website recently.

According to Twitter, their top priority is to keep people safe and to have a healthy discussion on the platform.
