Facebook and Instagram are also blocking Trump’s accounts.
After Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat have also taken measures against Donald Trump.
The US president’s Facebook account has been banned for 24 hours due to “two violations of policy” of the company. According to Facebook, that means that Trump cannot post anything to his account during that time. Trump’s Instagram account will also be locked, CEO Adam Mosseri said.
Facebook also removes content that, for example, praises the storming of the Capitol. A video of Trump was previously released, in which he called on his supporters who stormed the Capitol to go home, but in which he also disputes the election results.
“The violent crowd in the Capitol is an embarrassment. We prohibit incitement and incitement to violence on our platform. We are actively reviewing and removing content that violates these rules,” said a Facebook spokesperson.
