“Last week, we announced President Trump’s indefinite suspension Snapchat (SNAP) and assessed what long-term action is in the interest of our Snapchat community. “said a spokesman for Snapchat.” In the interest of public safety, and based on our attempts to misinform, hate speech, or violate, which are a clear violation of our policies, we have decided to close your account permanently. “
Social media platforms are struggling to eliminate or restrict access to inflammatory content and accounts, especially with regard to what the president needs to do, in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riots and the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden next week.
Last week, Facebook said it would ban Trump’s account from being posted for at least the rest of his term, and perhaps “indefinitely.” On Twitter, Trump’s preferred online megaphone originally locked his account because it incited what turned into a violent uprising at the U.S. Capitol. He tweeted twice more before Twitter determined it was enough and suspended his account permanently.
YouTube announced on Tuesday that it will suspend Trump’s channel for at least a week, and possibly even longer, after his channel has been struck under platform policy.
