Twitter in its blog post explaining its decision said –

Before completely banning Trump’s Twitter account, Twitter has earlier warned of such action if Trump violates the policies framed by it.

Despite many efforts by Trump to revoke his Twitter’s account, the Twitter officials have declared the account as a permanent deletion.

Twitter told-

Using another account to try to evade a suspension is against our rules,

We have taken steps to enforce this with regard to recent Tweets from the @POTUS account.

These two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks,

Twitter also removed the accounts of Michael Flynn and other high-profile Trump supporters who promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Twitter also said –

The accounts have been suspended in line with our policy on Coordinated Harmful Activity,

Given the renewed potential for violence surrounding this type of behavior in the coming days, we will permanently suspend accounts that are solely dedicated to sharing QAnon content.

Donald Trump has 81.7 million followers which isis one of Twitter’s 10 most popular accounts in the world.
