The social network Snapchat will follow the path of Twitter and permanently block the account of the current President of the United States Donald Trump on January 20.
Axios has learned that Snapchat evaluated Trump’s actions on the platform, which was used for a young audience under 30, and made this decision.
“Last week, we announced an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s account to assess what long-term actions are in the best interest of our Snapchat community. In the interest of public safety and based on Trump’s attempts to spread misinformation, incite hatred and incite violence, which is a clear violation of our core principles, we have decided to permanently close his account,” Axios of Snapchat responded in an email.
Last week, Snapchat became the first platform to announce the indefinite suspension of Trump’s account. Many other platforms have imposed temporary restrictions. Donald Trump’s accounts have been blocked on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
