Twitter has permanently blocked the account of the President of the United States (US) Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump).
This means that Trump will no longer be able to tweet for good.
Twitter has previously warned Trump to abide by their rules not to post provocative tweets. Even Twitter has provided an evaluation after suspending Trump’s account for 12 hours.
“After further reviewing the latest Tweet from @realDonaldTrump and the surrounding context, we have decided to suspend the account permanently due to the risk of further incitement to violence,” wrote Twitter in its official statement, Saturday, January 9.
“In the context of this week’s gruesome events, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules could potentially result in this action,” tweeted @TwitterSafety.
This means that Trump will no longer be able to access his personal account. Twitter also removed Donald Trump’s name and profile picture from its wanted list.
Twitter noted, on January 8th, Trump posted a tweet “75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE in the future. They will not be respected or treated unfairly in any way, shape, or any form !!! “
Shortly thereafter, Trump tweeted, “To all who ask, I will not attend the inauguration on January 20.” Regarding the two statements, Twitter assessed that President Trump did not plan to facilitate “an orderly transition process.”
This prompted Twitter concerns that Trump’s remarks not to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration would be interpreted by some of his supporters as further confirmation that the US presidential election process was illegitimate.
Recalling previous events, Trump tweeted messages encouraging non-violence, although he later released a video message that also reiterated his unsubstantiated claim that the election was stolen from him and told rioters “we love you.”
Due to this action, Twitter suspended Donald Trump’s personal account for 12 hours. Twitter itself has also warned that future policy violations will result in Trump’s account being permanently banned.
