The management of the social networking site Twitter announced yesterday, Friday, that it has permanently suspended the operation of the account of the outgoing Republican President Donald Trump, due to the “risk” of proceeding with “further incitement to violence”, after the invasion of Tapita by his followers.
“Following a thorough review of recent posts on the realDonaldTrump account and their context, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement to violence,” the company said in a statement.
Facebook and other social networking sites have already suspended the President's accounts on their platforms indefinitely.
Meanwhile, the outgoing US President accused Twitter's address of “banning” “freedom of speech”, shortly after it was announced that the operation of his personal account was permanently suspended.
“As I have been warning for a long time, Twitter is going further and further in banning free speech,” Trump said in a thread on his official presidency account (@POTUS).
He accused “Twitter employees” that “in coordination with the Democrats and the radical left” they suspended the operation of his account in order to “silence” him as well as “you, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me”.
