President Trump’s Twitter handle was permanently suspended by the social media giant, citing the risk of further incitement of violence.” The company further said in a statement that it took the decision after a thorough review of tweets from the incumbent’s account. Interestingly, the extraordinary development comes amid growing criticism of online platform from Trump and his supporters.

Besides that, several celebrities and congressional leaders have called on Twitter to ban the incumbent from the platform altogether. On Thursday, the former US First Lady Michelle Obama took to Twitter and urged the silicon valley tech giants to stop Trump’s “monstrous” attitude by permanently banning the Republican.


Earlier on Wednesday, after Trump addressed his supporters and asked them to storm the US Capitol, the company locked out his Twitter handle for almost twelve hours. Hundreds of pro-Trump supporters forcefully entered the government building in a bid to stop Congressional certification of Biden’s victory in the November polls. Unfortunately, the extraordinary chaos resulted in five deaths, including a US Capitol police officer, who succumbed to injuries sustained during physical clashes with the rioters.

Additionally, the social media giant also warned the incumbent if he violated Twitter’s rules again, his account would be permanently banned. But soon after being allowed back to the platform, Trump posted two tweets, which the online platform cited as final straws. He wrote, “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape, or form!!!”

In response, Twitter said in a statement that this tweet indicates that President Trump does not plan to facilitate the Biden administration a smooth and orderly transition of power. While in the other tweet, President told his supporters that he will not be going to President-elect Biden’s inauguration on January 20. The social media company stated that his tweet was being interpreted by his staunch followers as a further indication that the November elections were flawed and argued that these posts in violation of “glorification of violence policy.”

Following the permanent suspension of Trump’s account, he posted tweets from the official government account, saying that he would look at the possibilities of developing “our own platform.” However, moments later, the platform took these posts down. On the other hand, many a commending Twitter for taking a bold yet necessary step in a bid to maintain peace in the country. Over the years, his critics have accused him of using the platform to insult his rivals, fire government officials, posting key policies, and went grievances.
