Twitter permanently bans Donald Trump

Social network site, twitter, on Saturday permanently suspended the account of the US president, Donald Trump after the fallout of the storming of the Capitol by a mob of his loyalists.

Twitter said it was banning President Trump from its platform over what it termed “risk of further incitement of violence.”

According to the social media giant: “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.”

Earlier on Thursday, President Trump was locked out of his account for 12 about 12 hours after a violent mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in a failed bid to try to stop Congress from affirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Trump posted a video on Twitter calling them “very special” people and saying he loved them. Five people died, including a Capitol Police officer.
