Social media giant, Twitter Inc, has permanently banned United States President Donald Trump's account for repeated rules violations, marking the most high-profile punishment the social-media company has ever imposed.
"After a 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 company wrote in a blog post on Friday.
The company announced the ban two days after Trump was initially suspended Wednesday for posting a series of tweets that misled users about the presidential election results, and appeared to encourage violent rioters who had mobbed the US Capitol.
One included a video message of Trump expressing love for the insurgents and calling the election "fraudulent.", Bloomberg reported.
