US President Donald Trump has been permanently suspended from social network app Twitter due to the risk of further incitement of violence. In a statement Twitter said the decision was made after close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account. The social media platform also d new tweets posted by Trump on the official government account @POTUS. It comes amid a Big Tech purge of the online platforms used by Mr Trump and his supporters.

Hundreds of Trump supporters entered the US Capitol as the US Congress attempted to certify Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election. The ensuing violence led to the death of four civilians and a police officer.  Twitter had warned then that it would ban Mr Trump permanently if he breached the platform's rules again.

Meanwhile the  Democrats have planned to introduce an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his role in Wednesday's invasion of the US Capitol. US House of Representatives  Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she would move forward with impeachment if Mr Trump did not resign immediately.

President-elect Joe Biden said impeachment was for Congress to decide. The White House dismissed the impeachment as a politically motivated move that would only serve to further divide the country. If the process does go ahead, it would be the second time the House has pursued impeachment against President Trump.
