Twitter announced the permanent suspension of President Trump’s account on Friday, after months of flagging his tweets with warnings-and days after the company said he violated its policies.
- Trump’s account was blocked for his tweets related to the Trump rally on Wednesday, which caused riots in the Capitol
- After the fatal riot, his account was temporarily suspended for the first time
The platform locked Trump from his account for the first time this week. The social media company believes that many tweets related to the riots in the Capitol on Wednesday were inflammatory.
The company stated: “After carefully reviewing the latest tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the surrounding environment, especially after receiving and interpreting these tweets on Twitter and from Twitter, we may further incite violence. The account has been permanently disabled,”
