Singularity Financial Hong Kong January 9, 2021 – Twitter Inc. permanently suspended the account of President Donald Trump on Friday.

“After close review of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter announced in a blog post.

A spokesperson for the platform told U.S. local media that Trump and others were banned in line with Twitter’s policy against harmful coordinated activity. The accounts of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Trump lawyer Sidney Powell were also permanently banned.
