Twitter has not suspended Trump and it explained why in a blog post on Friday.

"While you would love nothing more than to see a Twitter ToS Violation" for the president, "you and all of your liberal friends have NOTHING", Scavino tweeted to Stelter.

The company also sought to counter assertions that controversial figures like Mr Trump were kept on the platform largely because they helped Twitter's bottom line.

"Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets, would hide important information people should be able to see and debate", the company wrote in Friday's post.

The statement comes after some Twitter users have called on the company to ban President Trump for tweets that they say encourage violence, even stoking fears of a nuclear war between the USA and North Korea.

Some Twitter users have called, repeatedly, for the social network to block President Donald Trump's account - but a new statement from Twitter essentially says that is not going to happen.
