Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter on Friday.
For most of his Presidential term, Trump's Twitter feed made headlines almost daily. But following his supporters storming the United States Capitol building on Wednesday, his account was suspended. He was initially allowed back after a 12-hour suspension but later had his profile permanently removed.
Twitter said that the decision was made "due to the risk of further incitement of violence."
"In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action."
Mark Zuckerberg also announced that Donald Trump was indefinitely banned from Facebook and Instagram, at least until the end of his Presidency.
"In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action," wrote the Facebook CEO.
"We believe 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."
The President's Twitch channel was disabled on Thursday, with a spokesperson telling TechCrunch "Given the current extraordinary circumstances and the President’s incendiary rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence."
Shopify has taken down two Trump-affiliated online stores, and Snapchat has disabled his account.
Other companies have suspended communities or features used by Trump's supporters.
Google has pulled Parler, a right-wing-focused social media app, from Google Play.
Reddit has also banned the "r/DonaldTrump" subredit, which is not an official channel of the President but is one of the largest online communities of his supporters.
TikTok, Pintrest, YouTube and Discord have all said they are working to remove content and tags related to spreading misinformation.
