“It shows how the Trump ban from the platform was a Pyrrhic victory for the critics of the platform, who criticized Twitter for allowing him to stay on after repeated community standards and bending over backward to accommodate him,” said Eric Wilson, the managing director of Startup Caucus and Republican digital strategist who has worked on presidential and congressional races.
“They succeed in getting him banned from the platform insofar as he himself can’t hit send and tweet, but he still drives the conversation,” Wilson said.
“I think it’s been a net benefit. His statements are still getting very widely covered,” Wilson told Insider, noting that many journalists “can’t help themselves” when Trump blasts out an emailed statement.
“It has also benefited him in making him look like a victim subject to censorship, and all the punishments by Big Tech,” Wilson added.
