Trump “indefinitely” banned from Facebook, Instagram for at least 2 weeks

President Trump has been banned from Facebook for at least 2 weeks.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg issued the following statement:

Twitter has removed multiple tweets from President Trump and has threatened permanent suspension.

In place of the tweet is the message “This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter rules.”

The “Twitter Safety” account explained what is going on in a thread.

As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy.

This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.

Twitter then threatens to permanently suspend Trump from their platform, writing:

Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.

The thread continues:

Our public interest policy — which has guided our enforcement action in this area for years — ends where we believe the risk of harm is higher and/or more severe.

We’ll continue to evaluate the situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter. We will keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary.
