Twitter has permanently suspended Donald Trump’s account two days after the siege at the Capitol that led to the death of five people and a few hours after he tweeted that he will not be attending Biden’s inauguration.
Donald Trump saw his official Twitter account suspended just some hours after the siege at the Capitol for his tweet on the dramatic scenes that happened.
The tweet was seen as one that promoted violence and Trump’s account was suspended for 12 hours before it was permanently suspended some hours ago.
Twitter explained why they took the decision in a statement they released a few hours ago.
“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 company said
A close check of Trump’s page, with 88m followers, shows no posts at all.

Yesterday, Facebook and Instagram also banned him from their platforms.
