Twitter Permanently Bans US President Donald J Trump’s Account

Twitter, on Friday permanently banned President Donald Trump from accessing it’s site. It cited the possibility of Trump inciting more violence among his supporters.

This is a punishment to Trump for his role in inciting violence at the US Capitol this week, robbing him of the megaphone he used to communicate with over 88 million people.

This bold move amounted to a historic rebuke for a president who had used a social-networking site to enhance his political prominence.

Trump has used Twitter as a primary communication tool to push policies, drive new cycles, fire officials, spread falsehoods, and praise allies. Well, not anymore!

For years, Twitter has been under pressure from critics to limit the reach of Trump’s falsehood-laced tweets. Calls for the banning of Trump from accessing the app have also been mounting for a very long time now. And it has finally come to an end with the attack on the Capitol being the final blow.

What twitter says

Now, @realDonaldTrump is gone for good, and attempts to evade the ban will result in enforcement, Twitter officials said.

“After close review of the recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them – specifically how they are being received and being interpreted on and off Twitter – we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence, the company said in a statement.”

It did not, however, take President Donald very long to try and get around the ban. He tweeted four messages from the @POTUS account, all that twitter took down swiftly.

In the posts, which Trump also shared in a written statement, he accused Twitter of banning free speech.

He said Twitter silenced him and ‘’the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.’’
