Iranian Supreme Leader Banned On Twitter

Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has long been on Twitter despite calls for the elimination of entire peoples and numerous other tweets that would result in normal Twitter users being banned. One of Khamenei’s Twitter accounts was banned following a tweet about killing Trump with a drone. More from Fox News:

It is unclear whether the suspended @Khamenei_site account in question was an official account belonging to Khamenei. Twitter did not immediately say how it determined the account was “fake.”

The image shared a statement that Khamenei initially tweeted in December, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported Friday.

“Those who ordered the murder of General Soleimani, as well as those who carried this out, should be punished,” a translated version of the tweet from Khamenei said, according to the outlet. “This revenge will certainly happen at the right time.”


Multiple reports have come in suggesting that the account did in fact belong to the leader of Iran. Ironically enough it was after Twitter banned Trump that an secondary account of Iran’s Supreme Leader was banned for threatening to kill Trump.
