Trump will lose protected Twitter status after his presidency

Twitter has at various times acknowledged that Donald Trump isn’t bound by the same rules that govern the rest of us. This executive privilege has allowed him to continue posting comments that could have long ago gotten any normal person banned from the platform.

Twitter was adding these at a frenetic pace in the lead-up to the November 3 election....
