WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has been suspended from Twitter after tweeting to supporters who attacked the US Capitol, BBC reported.
In a series of tweets he told the protesters “I love you” before telling them to go home. He also repeated false claims about election fraud.
Twitter said it required the removal of three tweets for “severe violations of our Civic Integrity Policy”.
The company warned that the president’s account would remain blocked for good if the tweets were not removed.
It went on to say that “Future violations of the Twitter Rules… will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account”.
Meanwhile Facebook and YouTube also removed his video message to protestors.
