In the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s permanent banishment from Twitter and its purge of others on the right, four major conservative figures have decided to leave, either for the pastures of alternative social media platforms or for nothing at all.
For those who departed for Parler, their decision might get a little more difficult: The conservative favorite has been banned from the Google and Apple app stores and is down in-browser for the moment after Amazon suspended its access to its servers.
However, Twitter users won’t be able to hear from Rush Limbaugh, Greg Gutfeld, Lou Dobbs or Mark Levin on the platform anymore.
The first to depart was radio icon Rush Limbaugh, who didn’t leave any message before he deactivated the account Thursday, shortly after Trump was banned from the platform permanently.
However, Twitter confirmed that the account was “deactivated by the owner,” according to USA Today.
