President Donald Trump’s personal account, @realDonaldTrump, has been struck with a total and absolute ban from Twitter just days after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building and just 12 days before he leaves office. The president, who relies upon Twitter as his personal communications platform of choice, was “permanently suspended” for risk of inciting further violence.
