Social media was flooded with reactions after social media giants Facebook and Twitter temporarily locked the accounts of US President Donald Trump following the siege of the US Capitol by supporters.

The move came after the president published a string of inaccurate and inflammatory tweets as his supporters stormed the Capitol in an unprecedented effort to stop Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory on Wednesday.

Twitter and Facebook locks Trump account:

Twitter locked Trump’s account for 12 hours and said that the ban could be extended if several of his tweets that rejected the election results and appeared to incite violence were not deleted. The company also said that the account will be permanently suspended if he continues violating Twitter’s policies against violent threats and election misinformation.

Following Twitter, Facebook too barred Trump from publishing on the social network for 24 hours. After finding that he had violated the company’s rules with two posts.

While many thought that the move was long overdue. And received cheer on social media, other’s thought that it was too late.
