The Twitter accounts of the famous dissident Tang Baiqiao (@tangbaiqiao) and Trump’s Chinese Synchronous Tweets (@Trump_Chinese) were simultaneously suspended by Twitter for no reason
At about 11 pm on October 27, 2020, U.S. Eastern Time, the famous dissident Mr. Tang Baiqiao suddenly discovered that his Twitter account (@tangbaiqiao) had been suspended by Twitter for no reason. All account followings and followers were zeroed out. At the same time, the Twitter account, Trump’s Chinese Synchronous Tweets (@Trump_Chinese), managed by the Democratic Salvation Front, an organization founded by Tang Baiqiao, was also suspended for no reason.
This is not the first time that the account of dissident Mr. Tang Baiqiao has been suspended by Twitter. On May 30, 2019, on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, Twitter also suspended Mr. Tang Baiqiao’s and many other Chinese dissidents’ Twitter accounts. Mr. Tang's account (@Baiqiaoch) had more than 100,000 followers, published tens of thousands of tweets, and sent numerous private messages in the internal chatting groups. Mr. Tang complained repeatedly to Twitter without success, but the accounts of most other dissidents’ who were suspended at the same time were unsuspended in succession. The re-suspension of Mr. Tang Baiqiao’s newly-opened twitter account (@tangbaiqiao) before the US presidential election by Twitter should be related to Mr. Tang’s recent high-profile support for Trump’s re-election as President of the United States.
Simultaneously suspended account of Trump’s Chinese Synchronous Tweets (@Trump_Chinese) was launched in September 2018 by the Democratic Salvation Front founded by Mr. Tang Baiqiao. The Twitter account synchronously translated the tweets published by US President Trump’s Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) in Chinese. It strives to bring the most timely and accurate update of Trump’s account to Chinese Twitter users. As of October 27, 2020, before the account was suspended by Twitter, it has more than 250,000 followers, and tweets published by this account have been numerously quoted by many self-media and media in their programs, demonstrating its tremendous influence among audiences. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and the Hong Kong South China Morning Post once interviewed the account managers of Trump’s Chinese Synchronous Tweets and reported in both English and Chinese.
Mr. Tang Baiqiao and the Democratic Salvation Front strongly condemned Twitter’s act of killing freedom of speech and reserve the right to pursue relevant legal responsibilities further.
