Holy crap, Twitter finally banned Donald Trump!
We've got the full story on Shacknews, but if you missed it, it's a day many thought would never come!
After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.https://t.co/CBpE1I6j8Y— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 8, 2021
