Twitter (TWTR) confirmed that U.S. President Donald Trump will be treated under the same rules like any other user after January 20, when he will leave the president office.
Twitter (TWTR) marked warnings on some tweets from the world prominent leaders and celebrities. Such tweets from political and non-political celebrities otherwise would be removed. Twitter took this action to stop the spreading of false and misleading information.
