Social media platform Twitter has again banned the account of the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
“After a close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account,” Twitter said in a blog post explaining its decision, “we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Trump had earlier been banned by the platform after a mob of his supporters stormed the US Capitol building during which five persons died.
Shortly after the ban was lifted, Trump tweeted that his supporter will not be disrespected, adding that he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
“These two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks,” Twitter said.
