Well, that took entirely too long. Today (January 8), with less than two weeks left in his absolute sham of a Presidency, Twitter finally decided to ban Donald Trump from its platform.
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

According to Twitter, the Orange Overlord’s account got the boot because of “the risk of further incitement of violence” after Trump basically told his minions to take siege of the Capitol on Wednesday (Jan. 6).
At first, Trump’s account got banned for 12 hours, before he returned to drop that hostage worthy take on Wednesday’s aforementioned incident. But now, he’s done.
“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,” said Twitter, via tweet.
Also, he tried to holla via the @POTUS account…and, nah.
Ban him on Google Plus and Myspace too just to be sure.

This story is developing.
