Tech giant Twitter has announced Donald Trump's ban from the platform is permanent, and his account would not be reinstated even if he was to return to the White House.

Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal scrambled to assure investors that Twitter would prevail despite banning its most famous and popular user.

During an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box," Segal was asked about a scenario where Trump was elected president again.

But the executive was adamant that Trump will never send another tweet.

“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Segal said, “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official.”

“Remember, our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we have to remove them from the service, and our policies don’t allow people to come back,” he added.

Trump is expected to be found not guilty by at least 44 Republican senators, denying Democrats a conviction.

Last month, Twitter's founder and CEO Jack Dorsey defended Trump's ban claiming it was the "right decision."

Dorsey admitted that Big Tech's anti-Trump effort sets a "dangerous precedent" and will be "destructive" in the long term.

"I do not celebrate or feel pride" in the ban," Dorsey wrote.

"I believe this was the right decision for Twitter," he added.

"We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety."

"Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all," he continued.

"Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us."

"They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning."

"And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation," Dorsey wrote.
