Social Media Taketh Away

Elsewhere on social media, Trump continues to get hit with the banhammer. Following the events at the Capitol, Twitter removed three Trump tweets and suspended the president’s account for 12 hours. The next day, Facebook issued Trump an indefinite ban — which will last at least two weeks, if not longer — saying that Trump is too dangerous to leave on the platform. Both platforms, along with YouTube, removed a video from Trump Wednesday night in which he told D.C. rioters to go home and (here’s the problematic part) falsely claimed that the election “was stolen.”
