Social media, big tech companies have not been kind to President Donald J. Trump. Twitter itself has censored, suppressed or limited President Trump’s account or his campaign’s account 486 times since May 31, 2018.

Joe Biden’s account and that of his campaign has not received any censorship. At all.

According to Business Insider, some tweets from Trump’s account were completely disabled — meaning others could not like, retweet, quote teet or comment on the tweets.

In addition to the censorship, Forbes says that Trump’s twitter account lost 220,000 followers. It is the first time in five years Trump’s Twitter account lost followers for more than two consecutive days.

Twitter has also made it a common practice to label Trump tweets. When tweets are labeled, they are de-amplified.
