US President Donald Trump has been permanently suspended from Twitter “due to the risk of further incitement of violence”, the company says.
Twitter said the decision was made “after close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them”.
Mr Trump had earlier been locked out of his account for 12 hours.
Twitter had said that it would ban Mr Trump “permanently” if he breached the platform’s rules again.
It comes after Mr Trump tweeted several messages on Wednesday, calling the people who stormed the US Capitol “patriots”.
On Thursday, Facebook said it had suspended Mr Trump “indefinitely”. The popular gaming platform Twitch also placed an indefinite ban on the outgoing president’s channel, which he has used for rally broadcasts.
