After several warnings from Twitter, the social media management has permanently suspended Donald Trump’s account two days after the siege at the Capitol that led to the death of five people and a few hours after he tweeted that he will not be attending Biden’s inauguration.
Twitter explained why they took the decision in a statement they released a few hours ago. The statement reads:
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
A close check of Trump’s page, with 88m followers, shows no posts at all.
Yesterday, Facebook and Instagram also banned him from their platforms.
