Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has been utilizing his Twitter account to broadcast his message to nearly 300k social media followers.
The same social media platform has former U.S. President Donald Trump permanently banned.
Per the Washington Examiner:
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, whose Twitter account has amassed some 287,000 followers, regularly provides updates on the Taliban’s seizure of the country. He uses social media to assert that the overthrow has been largely peaceful despite reports to the contrary.
One Monday tweet from Mujahid, which might be an alias, showed a video of Afghanis in Kabul and was accompanied by the caption noting that Taliban militants have been deployed to various parts of the city.
“The general public is happy with the arrival of the Mujahideen and satisfied with the security,” Mujahid claimed.
Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump was permanently suspended from the platform after the Jan. 6 riot and has not been allowed to tweet for months.
