President Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been suspended for 12 hours following his incitement of rioters who stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
“We have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” Twitter said. “This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”

Twitter added that “future violations… will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”
Facebook also announced that they too, had suspended his social media accounts — which not only included his Facebook page but also his Instagram account, which is owned by Facebook.
“We’ve assessed two policy violations against President Trump’s Page which will result in a 24-hour feature block, meaning he will lose the ability to post on the platform during that time,” Facebook said in a tweet.
Has Trump finally gone too far?
