Donald Trump’s Twitter account was suspended for 12 hours and might even get permanently banned. This was because he supported a violent mob group that came down to the nation’s capitol while congress was there certifying the US election results. I can understand what Trump is trying to do here but promoting violence on a social platform is unacceptable. And the results are clear, Twitter has temporarily suspended his account and said if such things happen again, he will be permanently banned. Plus, he was also asked to remove all the tweets that violated Twitter’s terms and conditions. Here is the tweet regarding the same that Twitter has put out.
As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. https://t.co/k6OkjNG3bM

Why didn’t Donald Trump’s Twitter account get banned before?
Many might ask that Trump tweeted many questionable things in the past then why didn’t the ban happen earlier. Well, there is an explanation given by the social media platform. They said that under their public interest policy, they believe that tweets from world leaders should not be removed for the masses to criticize or acknowledge them. But after the latest tweet, the limit has been reached, and the necessary steps were taken by Twitter.
Twitter also said that they are going to work in the same way and keep reviewing situations in real-time. And take necessary steps if the tweets on their platform are out of line. The video of the riots and Trump’s tweet was removed from Twitter. And at the same time, the video was also removed from Youtube and Facebook. Trump’s actions are disappointing! Promoting violence is an offense, and the US president is doing it openly on a social media platform. Like what the heck!
