Twitter halts Trump's account
Twitter said on Friday that it has permanently removed the personal account of US President Donald Trump for possible "further incitement of violence."
"After close review of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," the company said in a statement.
After Twitter suspended Trump's account, four tweets were published from the official presidential account @POTUS on Friday evening: "Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech," and that it was looking forward to "the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future."
Twitter swiftly deleted the tweets soon after they were posted.
