While this tweet doesn’t belong to a celebrity or musician, it adds to the humor that a lot are choosing to see in Trump getting banned from his Twitter. An account by the name of @barronjohn1946 said, “Hello I am brand new to Twitter, what are you guys up to.” The profile photo is what really seals the humor this profile is getting at. The photo is of Trump disguised with a mustache.
Hello I am brand new to Twitter, what are you guys up to
