Why Trump twitter account was permanently suspended

Twitter Inc, the social media giant, indefinitely suspended the account of United States President Donald Trump for numerous violations of laws, marking the social media company’s most high-profile penalty ever imposed.

“After a 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,” the company wrote in a blog post on Friday. 

Two days after Trump was originally suspended on Wednesday for publishing a series of tweets that deceived users about the outcome of the presidential election, the company revealed the ban and appeared to promote violent rioters who had mobbed the US Capitol.

Bloomberg confirmed that one contained a video message from Trump expressing love for the rebels and calling the election illegitimate.
