The American President, Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended for inciting violence.
The social media network made this known in a blog post on Saturday.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account. We have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the blog post read in part.
“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.”
Trump’s favorite megaphone, Twitter, earlier blocked him for 12 hours and threatened a permanent suspension of his account if he continued breaking its rules.
The president returned to Twitter late Thursday, posting a video message that seemed aimed at calming tensions after the mahem caused by his supporters, although Trump did not go so far as to congratulate or even say the name of his successor, Biden.
“To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country,” Trump had said.
Similarly, Facebook Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg, on Thursday, announced an indefinite suspension of Trump’s accounts.
Zuckerberg said that the ban was because of Trump’s “use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”
