Twitter has now taken the unprecedented step of locking President Trump out of his twitter account, as well as deleting several of his tweets in the wake of the violent protests at the US Capitol today.

The ban will reportedly last 12 hours and the President will now be at risk of being completely suspended by Twitter if he violates their rules going forward.

As The Verge reports:

Twitter is locking President Donald Trump’s account for 12 hours after removing three tweets that contained “repeated and severe violations” of its civic integrity policy. It says the account will be permanently suspended if violations continue, and it will not be unlocked unless Trump entirely deletes the three offending tweets. The decision comes after Trump tweeted a video that Twitter said posed a “risk of violence.”

“As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, DC, we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy,” the Twitter Safety account tweeted. “This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked. Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”




    1. Stay off ALL these corrupt social media platforms entirely.

      They can’t control you if you don’t participate! I have never joined any of them and am surviving just fine.

    2. MF’ers need to be taken out from the top and stacked up high and deep until we have compliance and freedom of speech again. Hope you have eyes in the back of your head JD!!! 🤬🤬

  2. I was blocked by Face Crap from my negative reaction (actually, they didn’t allow ANY comment!!), but interestingly, I posted a scathing – and, indeed, actually PROFANE! – comment on Twitter (calling Dorsey a jackass – actually, much worse!), but, strangely, they allowed it to be tweeted!! YEA! for small victories, I guess…

      1. To the democrats you are a nobody. Nothing more than a stepping stone for them to use until they acheive their goal and then you’ll be discarded. That’s a fact.

    1. Live long and prosper – is now just a “pipe dream” of Dorsey’s
      They have pushed the envelope to far –


      1. What the hell are you shootin’ up Rayjay???? We patriots are now free to bring the pain. I got guns. I PRAY you MFer’s try to come and get ‘em!!! And I hope you are the first one through the door

          1. You seek any attention you can get because nobody in the world loves you, not even your family.

      1. Your ignorance betrays you. Italian and Spanish are not the same language. Only a self absorbed fool would say something like that. They have similarities. In fact even with Spain and Italy the language is not the same depending on what part of the country you live in. But a know it all like you wouldn’t know that.

        There is an old saying that applies to you. “ Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool. Then to open it and remove all doubt. “ You have removed all doubt.

  4. I got rid of Twitter because they are nothing but corrupt Democrats. Best thing for our President is to tell Twitter to take it and shove it where the sun never shines. They do not want the truth out there they are living in a dream world . Wake the hell up everyone and quit the corrupt twitter

  5. I can’t wait until you guys are supplanted by real social media platforms and rendered irrelevant. It’s already beginning to happen. We know what the face of fascism looks like.

  6. Twitter could care less about the truth. Someone needs to shut them down for 12 hours. Freedom of speech folks

  7. If these companies are allowed to silence the president what hope does the average American have of enjoying free speech? I fear it’s not our only right that will get trampled as the democrats steal their way back to power. God help us, and forgive us.

      1. Guaranteed by whom? The ones that stole the election or the ones that censor all social media? They’re one and the same.

    1. I used to display my two inch dork to unsuspecting old ladies when I would open my rain coat. I stopped because they kept laughing at me.

  8. Twitter should be sued. It was not Trump Supporters who broke into the Capital, but rather Antifa. Pictures and video are extant, and if anyone was taken in by it, they didn’t do violence to anyone or anything.

  9. BTW: I can go into President Trump’s Twitter account. He just got a Tweet deleted though, because Twatter are a bunch of Commies.

  10. It’s time to change where to post at. Use Rumble, Parler, and there’s a conservative caucus room. Boycott Twitter. Section 230 needs to be abolished. It’s appalling that the POTUS is banned. A sign of socialist communist regime.

  11. The Big Tech arm of the Democrat party doesn’t want to allow the truth about the corrupt election that we have observed in November. They know there was much fraud in the election. The same pattern of fraud was evident in the Georgia runoff election yesterday that was just as obvious in November. The Georgia Secretary of State failed to make even the smallest effort to correct the problems. As usual, Twitter is censoring the facts to protect their handlers in the Democrat party.

  12. My Boy pal makes $seventy five/hour at the internet. She has been without a assignment for six months however remaining month her pay have become $16453 genuinely working at the internet for some hours. open this link..

  13. I hope after President Trump gets back in the Captains seat he lowers the BOOM on Twitter, Facebook and Google for al the sedition they have committed against the USA.

  14. If people would just stop using those traitorous bastards, they would be out of business. There are other media networks you can use or be like the old days, USE THE TELEPHONE.

  15. What is shocking? They are communist tyrants. They want to crush all that is good and decent in America. The only option I see left is to water the Tree.

  16. why don’t the 75 million of us that voted for trump delete their accounts and join parler like i did!that will surely send a message to these social media giants!

  17. I don’t have a Twit account and never plan to have one. How many of you have one?

    I hate FB and only use it to keep up with family and my Christian friends. Anyone know of another option so we can all dump FB?

  18. What happened yesterday at the Capitol was well overdue. Watching the main stream shows this morning was simply disgusting! This crowd of Patriots needs to be the next group of people to be dealt with. They need to be overtaken.
    Next disgusting thing was all the cowards in both branches of government that caved.
    Thank God for Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. They stood their ground. Funny how the media NEVER reported with this much condemnation all Summer long when businesses were being burned to the ground by BLM & ANTIFA!

  19. What I meant to say was
    …….this group of Patriots needs to deal with the media. Over take them as well.
    Sorry. Pressed send to soo.

  20. I blame Big Tech for riots as well.
    & Antifa, BLM, Chinese, DNC, DC elites, Never Trumpers too.
    only+ : bombs at DNC & RNC
    Make Biden a 1 term President too make=

  21. Long haired ear ringed JD is one dirty looking piece of horse manure.
    The Zucker boy looks like an alien or a pansy boy with a hot poker up his rear end.

  22. No problem. All with any sense who has the least bit of courage should delete their twitter account, their FB account, and shun the News Media as much as possible. Make they pay by ignoring them as if they do not exist. I have no Twitter account and have left FB long ago. Don’t miss them in the least. Look for and find Patriotic, God fearing honest businesses who are loyal to America, God, and you. We don’t need them, they need us! Understand that, and form new alliances that really matter. Have a great day.

  23. Nothing much else to say that hasn’t been said. The writings on the wall. The Country is set to split.

  24. so now we see how the Bill of Rights continues to be trashed. This is only the beginning of the decline of the United States of America where billionaires control our lives and political correctness destroys the Constitution.

  25. Join me. I dropped the hammer on twitter and Face Book long ago. Do not miss them. It is time to drop the hammer on some movies stars, journalist and other liberal unpatriotic business enterprises. Face facts, our politicians are mostly greedy fat pigs loading up on PORK at every opportunity. They spend the money and we pay the bills. You can now expect fuel, prices to soon sky rocket. Trump build up our supplies, now Biden and his mates will ruin them. Learn to pay more taxes and plant yourself a little garden because food will become a scarce item under the coming Communist Regime! It is going to get bad and you can thank all those idiots who voted for the Scum-o-crats. Hard times are in store. Yes even worse than they are now.

  26. It is now very plain that Big Tech (FB, Twitter) is committed to reinforcing The Resistance in its goal of getting Trump out of the White House ASAP. The RINOs are giving up all pretense of supporting conservative principles, even cutting the elector challenge plan off at its knees. I guess they plan on making the leftist claim of NO Election Fraud a true statement by consensus. Time to re-read Atlas Shrugged and review Ayn Rand’s prediction of today’s out-of-control leftists. Will we end up having another 8 years of wasteful installation of a socialist government, with everybody trying to show the “leaders” that THEY are worthy of good positions in the unlimited power grab.

    The Resistance and their 4 years of lying about Trump has been successful. Seems what is left to do is let them ruin the nation any way they want, and when it is done, put it back together like a bunch of John Galts.

  27. Fake messages are written all over
    Using others identities and no way to delete or complain
    this website is a trap

  28. Trump never bother to break up and destroy and punish the tech titans
    Cost him everything

    China control these tech firms

  29. Pence must have sex tapes taken by CCP & CIA
    Might took a $200 million bribes or face murder by CCP or CIA
