Donald Trump's personal Twitter account has been permanently suspended by the social media platform as of Friday evening. While the #POTUS account is still active, Twitter wrote that they had come to the decision to suspend Trump's account "after close review of recent Tweets" due to "the risk of further incitement." Earlier on Friday, Trump tweeted that he would not be attending Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday, January 20.

The account with over 88 million followers, was initially banned for 12 hours on Wednesday due to “severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy,” after he used the platform to condemn Vice President Mike Pence as his supporters stormed the Capitol.
