The social media platform had faced growing pressure to take further action against Trump in response to Wednesday’s Protest, allegedly turned riot, by his supporters.
Twitter banned President Trump’s account Friday, citing “the risk of further incitement of violence” following the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. No one in or out of media condemning the event has actually stated anything Trump allegedly did however.
The social platform has been under growing pressure to take further action against Trump following the violence Wednesday. On Thursday, Facebook suspended Trump’s account through Jan. 20 and possibly indefinitely. Twitter merely suspended Trump’s account for 12 hours after he posted a video that reiterated claims about election fraud.
