Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have all removed Donald Trump‘s video message to rioters at the US Capitol.
The three social media platforms have deleted the video which told his supporters that while he loved them, to “go home now”, before he shared his views that the election was stolen from him again.
Facebook and YouTube took the down the video earlier than Twitter, who did so just an hour ago.
Guy Rosen, who is the VP of Integrity at Facebook, tweeted that the company removed the video “because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence.”
Now though, on top of removing the video from Twitter, the platform has also locked Donald Trump‘s account.
“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,” Twitter safety wrote on the platform.
