When Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said Trump will be subject to Twitter’s normal rules after he leaves office, Democrats and disinformation experts breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, the era of Trump’s social media impunity will come to an end.

So @realDonaldTrump will definitely be just like any other account and liable for lockouts and suspension if it breaks the rules, right?
