The microblogging platform had on Friday permanently suspended Trump’s account over what they termed as “risk of further incitement of violence.”

“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,” Twitter had written in a statement.

Prior to the development, TheCable had reported how Trump’s account was locked for 12 hours and three of his tweets deleted for “severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy” on Wednesday.

Trump was said to have used his handle to mobilise his supporters who invaded Capitol Hill, while the congress was certifying the victory of Joe Biden, US president-elect.
