Twitter has again permanently suspended the account of the US President Donald Trump for rules violation.


According to reports gathered by THEWATCH NEWS, Twitter banned the @realdonaldtrump account on Friday, citing ‘risk’ that the president would incite further violence.


According to THEWATCH NEWS, Twitter first locked Trump out of his account on Wednesday for inflammatory posts after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, but the company lifted the suspension the following day, forced Trump to make a speech demanding a stand down from his protesters.


Our correspondent reports that three persons were killed including a capitol police officer.


“After a close review of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” read a company statement late Friday.


American celebrities have taken to their Twitter accounts to express their reaction over the permanent suspension of President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.


A Tweet gathered by THEWATCH NEWS revealed that Twitter also deletes all the tweets from @POTUS after taking down Trump's account.


Tony Posnanski @tonyposnanski Tweeted, IM UP AND GOOD MORNING TO EVERYONE WHO CAN SEE THIS WHICH DOESNT INCLUDE DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE HE IS BANNED HAHAHAHAHA.

The Hardy Report @EdwardTHardy also Tweeted, Twitter has wiped all tweets from @POTUS and permanently suspended @realDonaldTrump and @TeamTrump after Donald Trump tried to tweet from them.


  Whoopi Goldberg just wrote, “Finally,” and comedian Wanda Sykes called for Twitter to suspend more accounts.

“FINALLY!” she wrote. “Can we put them on a family plan? Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, Jared, you too Melania…Shut all of them down!” According to author Stephen King, Twitter “finally got fed up with Trump’s lying (expletive) and took away his megaphone.”

“Good. Makes me proud to be a twitterhead,” he added. Hillary Clinton called back to one of her past tweets during the 2016 election in which she ran against Trump for the presidency.


At the time, she tweeted at Trump, “Delete your account.” On Friday, Clinton resurfaced her old tweet with a check mark emoji.


“Twitter finally banned Trump!” wrote Sacha Baron Cohen, who has called for Twitter to ban the president in the past. “We did it!
