Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook have decided to unplug President Trump from their social media platform.
“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 wrote in a statement.
On the other hand, Facebook suspended Trump’s account indefinitely late last week, with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg writing in a post that “the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely, and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”
Meanwhile, many of Mr. Trump’s followers have taken exceptions to the social media platforms permanently blocking President Trump’s account.
