Further snubbing the Republican Party lead Donald Trump into trouble, all significant social media platforms on Thursday locked his verified accounts condemning the video posted by him during a withering assault on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
While Twitter removed three tweets from the account of President Donald Trump on Wednesday and suspended his account for 12 hours, Facebook and YouTube blocked the present President’s account for 12 hours and threaten to permanently ban it.
It can be noted that Twitter initially didn’t take down the video, instead of removing the ability to retweet, like and comment on it and another tweet. However, with mounting pressure from lawmakers and netizens it later removed them, and suspended the outgoing president.
In the video posted, Trump was seen claiming that the election was taken from him and encouraging his supporters to disperse after violence erupted at the Capitol. He said that law and order were needed and that he loved his supporters.
Nevertheless, Trump’s official government account on Twitter, which he doesn’t use as frequently as his personal account, remains active.
