In a move that makes sense to no one, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid was able to use Twitter to provide updates on the chaos in Kabul while former President Donald Trump is banned from using the social media platform.
According to Fox News, “Zabihullah Mujahid’s account is not verified but has nearly 280,000 followers and is regularly cited by major news outlets. He recently tweeted an update on “military units” entering Kabul. He wrote that their “advance is continuing normally.”
Trump has been banned since January 8th – a move Twitter made in the wake of the attack on the Capitol. The reason provided: Trump would increase the risk of “further incitement of violence.”
But the Taliban continues to Tweet away.
