Twitter has permanently suspended Trump’s account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” Twitter said and continued: “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. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”

In his last tweet Trump announced he won’t be going to the Inauguration on January 20th of the president elect Joe Biden. According to Twitter this statement is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate.
