Snapchat Permanently Bans Trump From Its Platform

By Dominic Taylor-

Snapchat has permanently banned president Trump from its platform, joining other social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.

Last week, Facebook said it would ban Trump’s account from posting for at least the remainder of his term in office and perhaps “indefinitely.” Twitter, Trump’s preferred online megaphone, initially locked his account for inciting what became a violent insurrection at the U.S Capitol. He would tweet twice more before Twitter determined it had finally had enough and permanently suspended his account.

Snap says it made the decision in light of repeated attempted violations of the company’s community guidelines that had been made over the past several months by the President’s account.

“Last week we announced an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s Snapchat (SNAP) account, and have been assessing what long term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community,” a Snapchat spokesperson said.

“In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account,” a spokesperson from Snapchat said.

YouTube said Tuesday that it is suspending Trump’s channel for at least one week, and potentially longer, after his channel earned a strike under the platform’s policies.

Snap announced last week that it was indefinitely locking President Trump’s Snapchat account. But after temporary bans from his Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts as well as a permanent ban from Twitter, Snap decided that it will also be making its ban of the President’s Snapchat account permanent.
