Twitter Suspends Trump's Account For 12 Hours.. by Golan007: 1:15am On Jan 07
Facebook, Twitter and YouTube take action on Trump's posts amid riots at the US Capitol.



Facebook, Twitter and YouTube took action on President Donald Trump's posts Wednesday in the wake of riots at the US Capitol from his supporters, but the platforms stopped short of suspending the President's accounts despite growing pressure from advocacy groups and prominent figures.

Facebook and YouTube each removed President Donald Trump's video from earlier in the afternoon addressing his supporters, according to company spokesmen. In the video, Trump had urged Capitol rioters to "go home" but struck a sympathetic tone and reiterated his debunked claims of election fraud.

"This is an emergency situation and we are taking appropriate emergency measures, including removing President Trump's video," Guy Rosen, Facebook's VP of integrity, said in a tweet. "We removed it because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence."

Twitter did not remove the video. But as of Wednesday afternoon, the social network did move to restrict engagement with tweets by Trump and others that have been labeled "due to a risk of violence."

Likes and replies have been disabled on Trump's tweet that claimed Vice President Mike Pence "didn't have the courage to do what should have been done." Retweets of the tweet have been restricted, prompting users to add a comment rather than simply amplifying Trump's remarks.

Those same restrictions were also applied to the video to Trump's supporters.

"In regard to the ongoing situation in Washington, D.C., we are working proactively to protect the health of the public conversation occurring on the service and will take action on any content that violates the Twitter Rules," Twitter said.

"Threats of and calls to violence are against the Twitter Rules, and we are enforcing our policies accordingly. In addition, we have been significantly restricting engagement with Tweets labeled under our Civic Integrity Policy due to the risk of violence. This means these labeled Tweets will not be able to be replied to, Retweeted, or liked."

Twitter is still considering other "escalated enforcement actions," it added.

Facebook condemned the riots at the US Capitol on Wednesday, but stopped short of saying Trump would be blocked from the social media platform.

"The violent protests in the Capitol today are a disgrace," said Facebook spokesman Andy Stone in a statement to CNN Business. "We prohibit incitement and calls for violence on our platform. We are actively reviewing and removing any content that breaks these rules."

Facebook, Twitter and other tech platforms faced growing calls Wednesday afternoon to suspend President Donald Trump's social media accounts for his role in the riots.

The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement accusing Trump of promoting sedition and inciting violence.

"President Trump has a responsibility to call for an end to this violence and unrest that he has sowed. His campaign of disinformation is a clear and present danger to our democracy," said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt. "But until such time as that happens, social media companies should suspend his accounts ASAP as they would do for anyone else advocating disinformation and promoting violence. It's time."

Jessica Gonzalez, co-CEO of Free Press, an advocacy group, tweeted that the major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok, face "another inflection point here."

So BLM and ANTIFA have been burning and looting cities across America in protest of "racist" Trump for close to a year with not one single FBI deep swamp creature bothering to lift a finger to stop these communist thugs. Even Mayors and Governors of these Democrat controlled cities and states forbade law enforcement from duly arresting these thugs and refused to call in the National Guard and even went as far as bailing out violent protesters and defunding their police.

Again for the past four years, Democrats propagated the 2016 election as fraudulent and claimed Russia hacked the outcome but suddenly say Trump has no right to complain about election rigging.

What you are witnessing in America is the beginning of Socialism that will see America transformed to a full communist and antidemocratic state.

The New World Order is creeping in in our lifetime. Staged by the Democrats and powered by the CCP!

The stronghold of tyranny is at full glare. A lot of us don't understand the magnitude this action by social media. For The President of America to be blocked on social media.

I laughed out loud at the assumption of this. It's obviously because of his ambiguous tweets which never admonish nor praise the troublemakers. How come this didn't happen during the BLM protests?

Long overdue.

Oh, and for the naysayers who have failed to see the need for the regulation of social media, look no further than this current situation.

Social media remains a ticking time bomb in the hands of those who understand how to wield its power. I will end my submission here.

His account will only be unlocked if he deletes the tweets (which I doubt he will).

uunwanaobong3:

This is bad for America...... I will say that this is just the beginning of more insurrections to come.
Biden administration will be one of the most turbulent in US history, and if care is not taken Biden might not completely him term.......... ...... What you saw tonight is what we called THE PEOPLE RESPONSE and it will also be counter by the opposition Democrats.

Let me stress here that the problem is not trump BUT the questionable confusing system in which this election was conducted and the failure of government agencies at various levels to investigate all unconfirmed fraudulent activities and persecute offender if any and clearify findings to the public with all evidence so that the loser will accept his lose and the winner maintain his win.

What happened tonight will change the face of America for ever.... The country is at a brink of civil war.............. Americans are feeling threatened that the damocrats are taking over everything including the media, security agencies like FBI and CIA, big tech companies, universities and other educational sector, .... Americans are also feeling threatened that outsiders are deciding election for them through voting by illegal immigrant, hacking and interference by china Russia Iran, big tech companies and the media ..... They are feeling threatened that their most industrous cities are radically becoming woke, censorship, intolerant and racial awoke and policed...

The real Americans will want to take back the city but it will heavily be opposed.....

Republican electorate are feeling betrayed by their own republican leaders who have betrayed them by failing to seek clearification and accountability of electoral process and results at their various units, and instead decided to stand with the democrat to fight trump.

Honestly, this is just the beginning...... There will be a major revolt in US sooner or later.... The line has been drawn. The country has further been divided.

Democrats are increasingly moving to the extreme left and aillinaiting the rest of the country who doesn't share their view .... They are also embracing foriegners at the expense of Americans

While Republicans are proving themselves to be useless, by failing to hold Democrats to accounts. Most republican leaders have alse disappointed their followers, by playing along with the democrats.

If Republicans party does not reconcile with trump and his followers, they might not win election again in US.............

An if Republicans keep depending on leaders like the Georgian state republican leaders who betrayed their party, they will never win election................ ..,.......

Also if the Republicans does not opposed to large scale mail in voting as was seen during this pandemic, and big tech electoral interference, they will never win election again................................

If also in the next election, another pandemic or anything happens that shut down schools and make these woke students stay at home and concerntrate on voting, Republicans will not win election...... Almost all American schools have been radicalized. So young radicalized students will always vote for Democrats


Republicans need trump more than trump need Republicans
America need Republicans more than Republicans need Americans................. Unopposed Democrat government is a bad omen for America.

Who are the foreigners you are referring to?

With Trump they lost 1 in 2.

They won when Trump was an unknown political quantity and lost after he was known.

Personally, I find it foolish when people say only one man is good enough for the country.

It is not only demagoguery but crass idolatry.

Before Trump there was America, after him there would be.

He simply falls in the category of 1 term presidents, often reserved for the destructive and evidently unfit for office.

This. Very irritating creatures.. always quoting the Bible like they owned the copyright to the good book while ignoring the glaring sign that a raving insane lunatic, unleashed from the deepest bowels of hell, may in fact be the anti-christ of our time.

Just look at America for Christ's sake!
