Donald Trump has been handed a permanent suspension from Twitter. This is coming after an initial 12-hour ban was placed on him that required the removal of a few harmful Tweets. Now, the social media platform has finally placed a permanent ban on Donald Trump. As a result, he would never be able to post on Twitter again.
Donald Trump's Offensive Tweet
Twitter had carefully assessed the acts that erupted after Trump's last two Tweets, one of which brought about the acts that happened on January 6. In the tweet, Trump called his supporters AMERICAN PATRIOTS while the next tweet reads; To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.

Over 300 signatures from Twitter employees were received for an internal petition calling for Trump's permanent suspension from the social media platform. Twitter had only kept Trump on the platform for the public's interest.
The 12 Hours Suspension
@TwitterSafetyhad earlier announced that it is requiring that Donald Trump remove three Tweets that caused the events that transpired at the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. on Wednesday which is a violation of Twitter's Civic integrity policy.
Twitter locked Trump's account for 12 hours while the violent situation in Washington D.C was ongoing. The attack saw pro-Trump protesters vandalized and forced their way into the U.S. Capitol while the Congress was busy taking actions to certify the last Presidential Election results in November 2020. The protest was in an attempt to further delay the certification process.

Consequently, Twitter made it clear that if @realDonaldTrump refuse to remove the three affected Tweets during the time-lapse, he will lose his account to a permanent ban. However, the Capitol was later secured and the electoral certification was continued.
