Twitter suspends Trump's account permanently

Twitter has permanently suspended the account of United States President Donald Trump, @realdonaldtrump, the company announced in a tweet.

"After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter said in a statement.

Whoever opens the account now sees "Account suspended. Twitter suspends this account which violates Twitter Rules." The @POTUS account, which isn't used by Trump himself, remains active.

Earlier, Twitter employees asked top company executives to ban the US president from the network.
