Twitter has completely banned President Trump, citing the danger that he would incite additional 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,” the corporate said late Friday.
Twitter, which had locked Trump out of his account Wednesday for inflammatory posts after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, lifted the suspension the next day.

The account, which had 88 million followers, has now vanished.
