At 6:21 p.m. EST on Friday night, two days after the deadly insurrection on Capitol Hill, Twitter announced — via their @TwitterSafety handle — that the account of President Donald Trump has been permanently suspended.



“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrumpp and the context around them, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the statement begins.

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.

However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement,” Twitter’s statement reads in full.

Twitter’s move comes after Mark Zuckerburg announced that the outgoing President Trump would be banned from both Facebook and Instagram “indefinitely”, or “for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

This story is developing.
