Twitter has permanently suspended President Donald Trump’s account.
The President was accused of using it for sedition.
After the US Capitol invasion, Trump seemed to have posted tweets that tactically supported further opposition to the incoming administration.
Some rioters are reportedly planning further attacks on state capitol buildings on January 17, three days to the inauguration of Joe Biden as President.
“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”, Twitter noted.
The social media platform said in the context of horrific events this week, it warned that additional violations of rules would potentially result in suspension.
Twitter added that it reminded users that accounts are not above its regulations
The statement added that the company will continue to be transparent around its policies and their enforcement.
It is not yet clear how Trump plans to disseminate his messages going forward. Facebook has also extended his ban.
More calls are being made for the President’s impeachment over Wednesday’s action by his supporters.
