The social networking site “Twitter” closed US President Donald Trump’s account due to tweets calling for threats and violence, with hundreds of protesters storming the Congress building yesterday, Wednesday.
Earlier, Twitter said in a statement: “We severely restrict interaction with tweets classified within our civic integrity policy due to the risks of violence.”
“This means that these classified Tweets will not be able to be responded to, re-published, or liked.”
Earlier, crowds of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the police barriers around the Congress building. Supporters of the US President went up to the main yard of the building and raised pro-Trump flags.
They chanted slogans rejecting the US presidential election results, which resulted in the victory of his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
After some Trump supporters entered the building, Congressional police called on House of Representatives members to make gas masks from under their seats and be prepared to use them.
US President-elect Joe Biden said that Trump should be responsible.
Biden described in statements carried by “CNN,” America, the riots in Washington, the chaos that will end in the rebellion.
But Trump called on his supporters in a video, yesterday evening, to abide by peace and order, and to return to their homes, saying: “We used to have elections that were stolen from us … but you have to go to your homes now. We must have peace; we must have law and order. ”
He added, “We do not want anyone to be harmed … It was a fake election, but we cannot help these people; we need peace. So go home … I know your feelings, but go home. Goodbye.”
