Twitter Suspends Donald Trump's Twitter account after numerous violations

President Donald Trump was a regular violator of Twitter's policy before he became the president of the United States. Suprisingly, he continued to violate Twitter's policies after he became the president of the United States of America and he was finally banned from Twitter today January 8th, 2020. 

Trump, as the president of the United States for the year 2016 to 2020 is a very powerful person. With over 75 million followers, Trump's misuse of his Twitter reach was becoming dangerous due to the type of messages he was putting out on his Twitter account @therealdonaldtrump. As a result, he was banned indefinitely.



A few days ago he was suspended for 12 hours for using his Twitter reach to incite violence by inviting his followers to storm the Capital building while the lawmakers were busy counting the Electoral vote that would certify president-elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the president and the vice-president of the United State of America.

Trump's disciples stormed the capital building and scare away the lawmakers. They broke the window, doors and messed up the federal building as the whole world watches on. 

Twitter said, "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. However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement."
