American microblogging and social networking site, Twitter, has suspended President Donald Trump from its platform.
Twitter on January 6 temporarily suspended the president for 12 hours, enabling Mr Trump to post a couple of tweets on Friday after the expiration of the ban.
But the company said Friday evening that it took the decision to avert further incitements in the wake of US Capitol instigated by the president.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said.
“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.”
