Dear 100 Hour Board,

Does twitter have the right to shut down POTUS's twitter account? If they can, why don't they?

Dear warrior,

Do they have the right? Yes. Will they? No. How else would Trump share his feelings at 1 a.m. for the whole world to hear?

While Trump does tweet offensive things, this is just waaaaaay too controversial for Twitter to get involved in. Twitter wrote about this themselves, saying, "Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions."

However, Trump's account was briefly shut down, prompting some hilarious responses. Who knows, maybe that will happen again
