Twitter Permanently Bans Donald Trump

Donald Trump has been kicked off Twitter for good, the social network said Friday.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company said in a statement.

More to come.
