JUST IN: Twitter permanently suspends Donald Trump's 88.7M account


It appear President Donald Trump will have to find a new preferred platform to share his views with the world.

Twitter permanently suspends Donald Trump from its network


Superior App Twitter announced Friday evening that it had permanently suspended Trump.


Twitter said Trump’s recent tweets — praising his supporters as “great American patriots” and announcing he would not attend the inauguration of Joseph Biden as the next president of the United States — together threatened to ratchet up tensions in a country still reeling from pro-Trump mob that stormed the House and Senate two days ago.


The suspension amounted to a historic rebuke for a president who had used the social-networking site to rise to political prominence. Twitter had been Trump’s primary megaphone, the tool he tapped to push his policies, disperse falsehoods, savage his critics and speak to more than 88 million users almost every day.

"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 wrote in a statement. This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
