Brexiteers have called on the social media giant to suspend Ms Sturgeon’s account after Mr Trump was permanently banned on Friday after he allegedly breached the website’s rules. It happened on Sunday, when the Scottish First Minister retweeted a threat from James Withers, the CEO of Scotland Food and Drinkk,claiming the first week of Brexit had been “bad”.
Mr Withers wrote: “More messages from food exporters who are finding the door to the EU is now shut.
“Haulage firms won’t take their loads; bureaucratic/IT systems failing.
“A multi-billion pound trade system is being tested for the 1st time, in real time.
“And it’s going wrong Brexit, week 1 was bad. Week 2 will be worse.

“UK Govt’s dismissal of the request from us (& most main business orgs) for a grace period was a critical mistake.
“By this time next week, pressure to revisit that will be even greater. Emergency financial aid may also be necessary.”
Ms Sturgeon shared the thread with her followers, claiming it reflected the “devastating impact” of Britain’s departure from the European Union.
She wrote: “This thread from @scotfoodjames on the real and devastating impact of Brexit on our food exporters is essential reading.”
