His Twitter account has been locked for 12 hours and the social media platform told him to remove three posts related to the unrest witnessed at Capitol hill.

It also threatened to permanently ban him from the platform in case of any future violations.

Facebook followed suit, locking the President from posting for 24 hours, citing “two policy violations.”

The suspension came following  a series of tweets he posted after a mob loyal to him stormed Capitol hill halting the Congress’ counting of the electoral votes to confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

His final tweet before the suspension claimed his victory over Democrat Biden had been “unceremoniously and viciously stripped away”.

The above tweet was immediately removed by Twitter.

A Facebook spokesman later confirmed “We’ve assessed two policy violations against President Trump’s Page which will result in a 24-hour feature block, meaning he will lose the ability to post on the platform during that time.”
