Over the past few days, many changes in America have taken place.

On Wednesday and into early Thursday morning, Congress did, in fact, certify Joe Biden as the next president. Biden will be inaugurated into office in precisely 11 days, although there’s no telling what could happen between now and then.

Many Democrats have decided that President Trump is responsible for his supporters who broke into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Big tech platforms like Instagram, Shopify, and several others, therefore, penalized the 45th president with indefinite account suspensions.

Finally, as of last night, President Trump is permanently banned from ever using Twitter, as confirmed by Breitbart News.

What to Know About the Trump Twitter Ban

Yesterday, Twitter permanently banned Trump on the basis that his account poses a risk of more incitement of violence. The big tech platform previously locked the 45th president out of his account after he posted a video message urging supporters at the Capitol on Wednesday to go home, yet also mentioned election fraud.

After Trump deleted the posts Twitter deemed as offensive, they reinstated his account, following a 12-hour-long ban. However, after the commander-in-chief posted a video delivering his concession speech and informed that he wouldn’t attend Biden’s inauguration, Twitter took his account down for good.

In addition to permanently axing the president’s account, Twitter also suspended @TeamTrump, the campaign account for the 45th president.

Big Tech Censorship on Steriods

The permanent ban from Twitter seems to have paved a path for other mainstream tech giants to follow suit.

Facebook and Instagram already enacted indefinite bans upon Trump, stating that these bans will last at least until Biden is inaugurated as the next president. Likewise, Shopify, in essence, has permanently banned Twitter, seeing as they pulled all his online stores from using their service.

Like Twitter, Shopify also believes that the president is responsible for the events on Capitol Hill and “incited” violence. The big tech censorship that’s happening at accelerated rates is likely to engender the continued rise of ongoing and alternative social media sites like Parler, MeWe, Rumble, Gab, etc.

Big tech, unsurprisingly, is also doing all that’s possible to get the aforementioned apps pulled from the Google Play Store and App Store.
