Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has slammed Twitter over its decision to permanently ban President Donald Trump from its platform.

On Friday, the Jack Dorsey-owned social media giant took the unprecedented move to permanently suspend the account of a sitting U.S. president.

Haley blasted Big Tech oligarchs in a Friday response to Twitter's announcement.

She slammed their efforts aimed at “silencing people,” noting that type of behavior is “what happens in China, not our country.”

Haley’s remarks were made in a tweet, which was posted shortly after Twitter announced it would permanently ban Trump from its platform.

“Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China not our country,” Haley wrote.

She also included the hashtag “#Unbelievable.”

In November, Twitter flagged Hayley's tweet about election fraud.

In response, Haley notably called out Twitter for ignoring a tweet casting doubt on the Holocaust by Iran’s Ayatollah.

“Wow,” Haley stated at the time.

“When Iran’s Ayatollah says the Holocaust didn’t happen, Twitter doesn’t say ‘this claim is disputed.’

"When I say ballot harvesting makes election fraud easier Twitter says that’s disputed.

"Wonder why conservatives don’t trust big tech?”

In addition to Twitter, other companies like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitch have indefinitely suspended the president’s access.

On Friday night, Google announced it had banned main Twitter rival Parler from its app store.

The Big Tech giant cited the app’s insufficient monitoring of content posted on the site that may “incite ongoing violence,” numerous sources reported.  

Parler, which touts itself as a free-speech social media alternative and has a laissez faire approach to content moderation, will have its listings suspended on Google’s Play Store until the platform implements “robust moderation for egregious content,” Business Insider reported.
