Twitter Temporarily Suspends Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei For Threatening Donald Trump — ‘Revenge Is Certain’
OPINION | This article contains political comments that reflect the author’s opinion.
Twitter blocked a fake account attributed to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei after a picture of a drone targeting a Trump-like target was posted on social media.
This contradicts the recent Twitter ban on former US President Donald Trump over the violence in Washington, DC on January 6th.
Khamenei has five official Twitter accounts where he posts the same things in different languages - Arabic, English, Persian, Russian, and Spanish.
On Friday, Reuters said it was actually a fake account.
The original tweet included the picture of a blonde golf figure who looked like Trump in a red shirt.
Revenge is inevitable
Soleimani’s murderer and whoever ordered Soleimani’s murder must take revenge.
Although Soleimani’s shoes also have an honor over his killer; But in the end they made a mistake, they have to take revenge; #Compromise_the_murderer to know that they have to get revenge anytime.

A US air strike targeted a convoy with Soleimani and at least three other militiamen at Baghdad International Airport in the successful attack.
The murder remains a severe blow to the Iranian regime, as happened just days after members of the Iranian proxy militia attempted to storm the US embassy in Baghdad.
“Those who ordered the murder of General Soleimani, as well as those who carried it out, should be punished. This vengeance will surely come at the right time, ”Khamenei tweeted on December 16, without naming Trump, who ordered the strike.
