The social network began a purge of messages that could incite political violence with the permanent suspension of Trump's account on Friday, after he posted tweets encouraging the delegitimization of the presidential election. Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitch also decided to suspend Trump's account indefinitely.
"Plans for future armed protests are proliferating on Twitter and elsewhere, including a second attack on the Capitol on January 17, 2021," Twitter warned.
Trump used this social network to interact daily with 88 million daily subscribers. In recent days, some European leaders rejected the Republican politician's account, arguing that the decision came as a result of a corporate choice and not as a consequence of a legal regulatory framework.
