Twitter said on Friday that it had permanently suspended President Trump from its service “due to the risk of further incitement for violence,” effectively cutting him off from his favorite megaphone for reaching his supporters, the New York Times reports.
Washington Post: “The move amounted to a historic rebuke for a president who had used the social-networking site to fuel his rise to political prominence. Twitter has been Trump’s primary communication tool to push policies, drive news cycles, fire officials, dispense falsehoods, savage opponents and praise allies. It also means his tweets disappeared from Twitter, removing the catalog of his thoughts except for those preserved by researchers and other documentarians.”
