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. https://t.co/k6OkjNG3bM— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 7, 2021

So Trump has access to the nuclear codes but he can't Tweet or post to Facebook.— Andrew Ross Sorkin (@andrewrsorkin) January 7, 2021
A Twitter spokesperson tells me Lin Wood has actually been permanently removed from the platform. Here is the sequence of events of how this happened:— Ryan Mac 🙃 (@RMac18) January 7, 2021
If you were ever in any doubt about who is really in charge.— Laurence Fox (@LozzaFox) January 7, 2021
After this dreadful time has passed, big tech must be held to account for the part they have played in this dark time for democracy.
Also, what is civic integrity?
And who decides how integral the civility is? https://t.co/kg1aRrtjjY
"'For four years you’ve rationalized this terror.' ... Twitter, Facebook and others had long resisted cracking down on Mr. Trump’s posts and other toxic content. ... 'This is a demonstration of the very real-world impact of echo chambers.'" https://t.co/dMGVM5czyh— Stefan Ottlitz (@hierprivat) January 7, 2021
Trump’s Snapchat account is also locked, Snapchat tells me. (He was already blocked last year from his content appearing on Discover. Now he can’t post at all.)— Sarah Frier (@sarahfrier) January 7, 2021
Everybody will have lots of definitive thoughts about twitter’s actions tonight. These are difficult decisions; with multiple POVs that are never black and white, all shifting in real-time, with millions of users sure to hate whatever you decide. Kudos to the team’s courage— dick costolo (@dickc) January 7, 2021
Twitter never reacted to the months of violence from BLM and Antifa.— Avi Yemini 🇦🇺🇮🇱 (@OzraeliAvi) January 7, 2021
In their defence, it wasn’t “unprecedented” as it was sustained.
But it was supported by Biden.
Now they’re about to BAN the president.
I can’t wait to see him on Parler and how he strikes back. https://t.co/Wk6Vg0zIPW
During 2009 post-election unrest in Iran, twitter cooperated with the US state department, managed to rebrand the events as a ‘Twitter Revolution’.— Zahra Shafei 🇮🇷 (@shafei_d) January 7, 2021
George Bush even suggested awarding Twitter the Nobel peace prize for coordinating those horribly violent riots. https://t.co/wfyTINVOJo pic.twitter.com/RBLVkkgMhH
Twitter has locked Trump’s account. He’ll get it unlocked 12 hours after he removes the policy breaking tweets OR it just remains locked if he doesn’t removes them.— Philip DeFranco 👊🏻 (@PhillyD) January 7, 2021
KEY NOTE HERE: After that if he violates policy again he’ll get hit with a PERMANENT SUSPENSION. 👀👀👀 https://t.co/Jn3WDYV7N1
It’s about fucking time twitter. After countless tweets being remove for violating the content policy, threatening the public, misinformation about voter fraud and the pandemic, I feel as if he’s already been massively ‘let off’ enough. I reckon he’ll be suspended within days. https://t.co/Js5F2eUlA9— Lampy (@Lampydoodle) January 7, 2021

Section 230? What about it? No, we’re not editing or acting like a publisher. No, this is different. We are acting, you know, responsibly. Or something. No, don’t bring up 230. That’s different. We only banned that which is absolutely necessary. To what, we are not exactly sure. https://t.co/CkRfoTALte— 🇺🇸Lionel🇺🇸 (@LionelMedia) January 7, 2021
