  • Twitter has permanently suspended Donald Trump from its platform.
  • The company says the decision comes after a close review of content on his account.

A day after placing at least a 12-hour lock on President Donald Trump's Twitter account, the company has announced that, after a close review of recent tweets from the President and the context around them, they are permanently suspending the account from the social media platform.

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 had originally locked the account and said that, in order to remove the lock, the President would have to remove three flagged tweets. According to the Twitter Safety account, additional violations were found which resulted in the permanent suspension.

The President is still blocked from other social media apps as well. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat have all placed an indefinite lock on Donald Trump's accounts as well.
