While Twitter has permanently banned the former President of the United States the platform is still allowing the Taliban’s spokesman to operate his account without consequence.
کابل ښار کې وضعیت د بشپړ کنترول کېدو به حال کې ده.
هغه خپل سري کسان چې په شرارت او آشوب یې لاس پورې کړی وو اکثره نیول شوی دی.
هیچاته اجازه نشته چې د پخوانیو چارواکو کورونو ته ورشي، د موټرو غوښتنه ترې وکړي او تهدید کړي، د هغوی مخه به په جدیت سره نیول کیږې، تر جدي تعقیب لاندې دي.

According to The Daily Wire:
Twitter is taking heat for banning the former president while allowing Zabihullah Mujahid to use the social media platform to tweet updates on “military units” entering Kabul, Afghanistan. He recently wrote that their “advance is continuing normally.”
Mujahid’s account is not verified but appears authentic. He has more than 287,000 followers and is regularly cited by major news outlets.
Several people posted tweets supposedly written by Majhid, whose bio says, “Official Twitter Account of the Spokesman of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.”
“Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid says in order to prevent looting and chaos their forces will enter some parts of Kabul and occupy outposts that have been evacuated by security forces. He asks the people to not panic from their entrance into the city,” wrote one person.
Why on God's green Earth does the Taliban spokesman have an active Twitter account but not the former President of the United States?
