Donald Trump could be referred to as the magnet attracting any controversial news, or perhaps it has more to do with him than the news. Recently, news surfaced stating that Trump is back on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, and that has proved to be the kick-off point of a chain of speculations and contemplations with users urging to boycott the social media platform, adding yet another name to the trending list of Twitter.
The doors to all social media platforms were closed before Trump following his controversial takes on the capital riots, and since then he has been on the silent side. However, with this latest rumor once again he has made news, and users aren’t happy.
Although the company underscores the fact that the news is just a rumor and that the former president is still indefinitely blocked from the social media platform, the users aren’t ready to calm down yet, and the fire that was sparked by a single rumor is burning strong, the heat of which is well reflected on Twitter in the form memes, responses, and jokes. After all, sarcasm never goes out of trend when it comes to hitting the right nerve, and netizens are determined to do the same.
Here is a compilation of reactions and responses from Twitter
The fact that users are urging to delete Facebook through Instagram sounds a bit like urging to cut the tree while sitting on the branch. Some might call it irony too.

Things are getting a bit aggressive here.
Don't stop there, delete Instagram and Whatsapp too.
And while you're at it, turn off CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC.
And tear up the NYT and WaPo.
