On January 8, 2020, Twitter suspended President Donald Trump from its platform. "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter said. It further stated: "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."
Twitter had initially removed three tweets of Trump that promoted conspiracy theories about the election and Trump's account was initially banned for 12 hours on January 6 due to “severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy,” after he used the platform to tweet condemnation against Vice President Mike Pence as his supporters stormed the Capitol.
