The outgoing US President has had his Twitter platform disabled on Friday after he allegedly breached the website’s rules. Those calling for Mr ’s account to be suspended hailed the move from the social media giant, while others claimed the ban attempted against his freedom of speech.


One civil rights non-profit body condemned Twitter for implementing the ban “too little too late”.

Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters for America, said an earlier response from the platform could have avoided the storming of Congress in Washington DC by supporters.

In a statement, he wrote: “These actions are long past due and appropriate. But, Twitter (and other platforms) doing this now is a lot like senior administration officials resigning with only days left – too little too late. has repeatedly broken Twitter rules.”

Mr Carusone called on other social media websites to mirror Twitter’s actions and ban the President from using their services.

He said: “If only Twitter and other platforms had acted earlier, Wednesday’s awful events could have been avoided. It is time for Facebook and other platforms to follow suit.”

The head of the media watchdog claimed Mr ’s first “call for violence” dated as far back as 2012 when former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney lost the election.

In a tweet, Mr Carusone wrote: “1/ Donald first issued a call for violence following Romney’s defeat in the 2012 election. It’s been 8 years since that first call for violence and many incitements since.”

He added: “2/ Twitter ban is fitting, but doing this now is a lot like senior admin officials resigning with only days left. repeatedly broke rules and Twitter ignored for years.
