Twitter locks Trump’s account, threatens to suspend him

President Trump accuses other countries of lying about number of Coronavirus deaths

The account of President Donald Trump has been locked by Twitter over his comments on the violence that rocked US congress on Wednesday.

Recall that Trump, who has refused to concede the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden, had charged his supporters to march to the congress when the lawmakers were in the process of certifying the victory of his opponent in the November 3 election.

The protesters had marched to congress in their thousands disrupting the process.

Although the US president asked them not to be violent, he endorsed their action, saying “today will never be forgotten”.

He had also incited them via Twitter, making some claims considered to  be inaccurate.

Responding to his action, Twitter removed a video where the president both called for the rioters to go home while also praising them and repeating the claims of voter fraud.

The microblogging site also locked Trump’s account for 12 hours and deleted three of his tweets.

“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,” Twitter said in a post to its TwitterSafety account.

This is Twitter’s strongest action against the president’s account.

The post Twitter locks Trump’s account, threatens to suspend him appeared first on Within Nigeria.
