2020 was a difficult year for Rush Limbaugh.
In January, Limbaugh announced doctors diagnosed him with stage four terminal lung cancer.
And now Rush Limbaugh had all hell breaking loose with this major career move.
Facebook, Twitter and every main social media platform swooped in and canceled President Trump in a coordinated strike following the riot at the Capitol where five people were killed.
Shortly after Twitter dropped the ban hammer on President Trump, users noticed Rush Limbaugh’s Twitter account was offline leading many to wonder if Twitter nuked Limbaugh’s account as part of their coordinated purge of conservatives.
USA Today later revealed Twitter did not ban Limbaugh as Limbaugh deactivated his Twitter account on his own reporting:
Radio host Rush Limbaugh’s Twitter account has been deactivated.
Twitter confirmed to USA TODAY that the account wasn’t suspended but “deactivated by the owner.”
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
On his radio program Limbaugh pulled back the curtain and explained why he took down his account.
Limbaugh told listeners that once Twitter suspended Trump he realized enough was enough and made the call to take down his account.
“So I called Kathryn. I said, ‘We gotta get outta Twitter. This is unacceptable. We need to cancel the account. We need to do whatever we have to do to get out of it. Just go in there and shut it down.’ She said, ‘It’s a great idea.’ So we did, and then the next thing I know, it’s being reported that Twitter canceled me,” Limbaugh began.
Rush said he ignored all fake news media inquiries about his Twitter account going offline as is his standard operating procedure and that only inflamed the story because reporters were too lazy to reach out to Twitter to get the whole story.
Rush said he made the decision to get on Twitter last October because he wanted to give it his all to get his message out that Donald Trump must be re-elected.
“Folks, I gave this last year everything I’ve got. I don’t want to get too much more into it, but believe me: I gave this last year everything I had. I didn’t take one minute of personal time away from this program. When I was gone, it was medical. You know, doing the Twitter thing was part of the all-out effort to give everything that I and we had to the election effort last year, 2020,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh revealed that now that the election was over and Twitter censored President Trump there was no point in remaining on a service that Limbaugh never much cared for in the first place.
