WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc (NYSE:) said on Friday that it has permanently suspended U.S. President Donald Trump’s account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

“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,” the company said in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Twitter temporarily blocked Trump’s account, which had more than 88 million followers, following the siege of Capitol Hill by pro-Trump protesters, and warned that additional violations by the president’s accounts would result in a permanent suspension.

The White House did not immediately comment.

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:) said earlier this week it was suspending Trump’s account through until at least the end of his presidential term. He is due to hand over to President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20.
