Twitter permanently suspends account of U.S. President Donald Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump looks on at the end of his speech during a rally to contest the certification of the 2020 U.S. presidential election results by the U.S. Congress, in Washington, U.S.

Twitter Inc said on Friday that it has permanently suspended U.S. President Donald Trump’s account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company said in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Twitter temporarily blocked Trump’s account, which had more than 88 million followers, following the siege of Capitol Hill by pro-Trump protesters, and warned that additional violations by the president’s accounts would result in a permanent suspension.

Facebook Inc said earlier this week it was suspending Trump’s account through until at least the end of his presidential term. He is due to hand over to President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.
