Just minutes after the news broke that Apple had given Parler, the social network favored by conservatives and extremists, an ultimatum to implement a full moderation plan of its platform within the next 24 hours or face expulsion from the App Store, Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump. Parler is now down and users cannot log in, according to tweets coming in late Friday afternoon.
Twitter users were still absorbing the wonderful news of Trump’s suspension when users who also have Parler accounts shared screenshots that showed they couldn’t access their feeds.
With losing his platform on Twitter and the potential for Parler to be gone for good, it remains to be seen how Trump will be able to communicate with his fanbase.
How will Trump counter attack devastating Twitter blow during digital "Trial by Combat?" Same as losing real life court trials?

Parler could be re-platformed if they follow the strict Apple guidelines.
