Twitter permanently suspends Donald Trump's account

It appears President Donald Trump will have to find a new preferred platform to share his views with the world.

Twitter announced Friday evening that it had permanently suspended Trump.

"After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them -- specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter -- we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter wrote in a statement.

Trump's final tweet said he would not be attending the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

Hashtags for "TrumpBanned" and "Thank you Twitter" quickly rose to the top of the social media site in the wake of the permanent suspension.
