Representatives of the social platform Twitter did not tell for how long the account of U.S. President Donald Trump is blocked.
Journalists drew attention to the fact that Trump, presumably, has already deleted the records for which he was blocked. It is noted that this is the first incumbent president in the history, whose page was blocked by this social network. According to the rules of the social network, according to the authors of CNN, the head of the country will again be able to make entries on his page as early as January 9.
Twitter blocked Trump’s account for 12 hours. The social network also threatened to permanently block his account if he does not delete the last three posts, which, according to the company, violate the rules of the social network. The reason for this was the publication of a video in which Trump addressed protesters outside the Capitol, urged them to go home and declared the election “stolen” from him.
On January 6, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building and surrounded the Senate chamber. The Senate and the House of Representatives interrupted a session scheduled to approve the results of the electoral college vote. According to these results, Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election. At the same time, Trump urged supporters to act peacefully and support the police. Later it became known that the Capitol building in Washington was cleared of protesters.
