Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trump

Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trump


After years of using Twitter as a legislation tool, sounding
board and occasional diary, President Donald Trump was
permanently banned from the platform on Friday.


Less than two weeks before the inauguration of President-
elect Joe Biden, the social media company removed the
commander in chief after rioters overtook the Capitol on
Wednesday, leading to the deaths of at least five people.


In a blog post about the permanent suspension,

Twitter said
they did so “due to the risk of further incitement of
violence.”


“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.


Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear
from elected officials and world leaders directly.

It is built
on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to
account in the open,” the company wrote.


“However, we made it clear going back years that these
accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use
Twitter to incite violence, among other things.

We will
continue to be transparent around our policies and their
enforcement.”
