Donald Trump has continuously used his personal Twitter account to bully and threaten members of the public. He’s attacked the media, insulted women, praised himself, and lied outright. It is common knowledge that Donald Trump uses his account as his own personal bully pulpit and to spread false news and personal information on those he dislikes. It is apparent that he is violation of the Rules of Service for Twitter users and does not appear to believe those Rules apply to him. It is also clear that he has no intention of stopping on his own and therefore we are petitioning Twitter and its executives to simply ENFORCE THEIR OWN RULES UNILATERALLY and BAN Trump's personal account from the social media platform. 

Twitter has repeatedly stated that its rules "apply to all accounts" but has taken no action against Trump who uses his account to enact personal vendettas against people who he perceives have "wronged" him knowingly causing death threats and violence to the individuals and companies he targets. 

"The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies,” a spokesperson wrote. Twitter confirmed that everyone, including government officials, were subject to the policy: “The Twitter Rules apply to all accounts,” a spokesman wrote. So we are asking that Twitter apply those rules to all accounts, including Donald Trump.

Twitter own rules tell users that they "may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others". It makes clear that it will consider a range of factors when deciding whether to lock or ban someone's account – including whehter the reported account is being "one-sided or includes threats", or is "inciting others to harass another account".

The rules list certain factors Twitter considers when evaluating reported accounts:

- if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;
- if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;
- if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and
- if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.

The tweet and the abuse that follows many of Donald Trump's posts are similar to the behaviour that led to Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos being permanently banned from Twitter because he sent public messages harassing comedian/actor Leslie Jones which led many other users to attack her too (as has happened in the most recent Trump imagined feud with the Steelworkers Union President- leading to death threats against him and his family), as well as banned a prominent governor in Venezuela’s ruling Socialist party for tweeting private information.

Please apply the rules evenly to all users of Twitter and ban Donald Trump from furthering his hate and bullying through the social platform Twitter. If it were anyone else - they would have long since had their account banned. Thank you for taking the time to hear our request.
