Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trumps Account
Donald Trump will never Tweet again.
Twitter announced Friday evening that "after close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence."
The social media giant suspended the account for 12 hours after the horrific events on Wednesday but now his account is permanently suspended.
On January 8, 2021, President Trump tweeted:
“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
Shortly thereafter, the President tweeted:
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
Twitter said, "due to the ongoing tensions in the United States, and an uptick in the global conversation in regards to the people who violently stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks."
After assessing the language in these Tweets against their "Glorification of Violence" policy, Twitter said that they have determined that these Tweets were in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy.
