Trump permanently suspended from Twitter after Capitol siege
8th January 2021

Twitter on Friday announced it is taking the unprecedented step of banning President Trump from the platform “permanently.”

“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 in a statement shortly after 6 p.m.

The decision comes after Wednesday’s US Capitol siege in which five people were killed when thousands of pro-Trump supporters unhappy with the election stormed Congress.
