Twitter suspended the account of Iran's top leader for threats against Trump

Twitter suspended one of the accounts related to Iran's highest leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Friday after posting a post announcing revenge against former US President Donald Trump over the assassination of Iranian general Kasem Suleimani.

The Persian-language @khamenei_site account suspended by Twitter is one of many related to Khamenei. The others, conducted in different languages, are still active.

The suspension occurred hours after the publication of a photomontage of Trump playing golf from a drone's perspective. The photo shows a quote from the Iranian leader's December speech in which he reiterated the threat of revenge for the Americans killing Kuds special forces commander General Suleimani in January 2020 in Baghdad.

"Revenge is inevitable. Suleimani's killer and those who ordered the murder must fall victim to revenge," the inscription read.

These are the next actions of the website towards Ayatollah. On January 16, Twitter removed a message on his English-speaking account saying that U.S. and British coronavirus vaccines cannot be trusted. The social network explained that the entry did not comply with its rules. (PAP)
