twitter and facebook lock donald trump's accounts
America continues to reel as The White House was stormed earlier today by White Nationalists & pro-Trump supporters. Meanwhile Donald Trump said little to dissuade their acts as they broke into The Capitol; climbing over barricades, breaking into windows, and even scaling walls--even breaching areas where Congress convenes. A woman was also killed by gunshot! Meanwhile Trump has been locked out of his Twitter account for reposting  videos praising the protesters and their acts of violence and destruction for twelve hours. This signals his account may ultimately face suspension.

Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) took the extraordinary step on Wednesday of locking President Donald Trump’s account on their platforms after his supporters stormed the Capitol building to protest the election.

Twitter said it has locked President Donald Trump’s account for 12 hours, and warned for the first time that it may suspend him permanently.
The temporary lock reflects Trump’s violation of the Twitter rules, the company said.
“We have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” Twitter said. “This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”
Twitter added that “future violations… will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”
Facebook also blocked Trump from posting on its platform for 24 hours, the company said, after it removed a video he posted to his supporters who participated in the riot.

“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,” Facebook said in a tweet.
Facebook spokesman Andy Stone didn’t immediately respond to questions about whether Trump could face a permanent suspension if he continues to violate Facebook policies.
The announcement marks a major escalation by both social media companies against Trump’s account and responds to calls by civil rights groups for Trump to be banned from the platforms.
We applaud Twitter and Facebook for taking some steps against Trump and his hateful acts, but the answer is to permanently bar him from all social media platforms altogether. His “Twitter fingers” are just too much and too dangerous.
