Facebook and Twitter indefinitely suspend Donald Trump’s accounts. Parler is removed from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

The Twitter ban, announced Friday, is permanent. The Facebook suspension is indefinite and was announced on Thursday.

Google Play removed Parler automatically, while Apple gave the company 24 hours to begin moderating its content.

The companies based these decisions on the recognition that Donald Trump’s social media accounts have been used to incite violence, and Parler has been used to plan it.

Twitter also permanently suspends the accounts of Trump / Flynn attorney Sidney Powell, Michael Flynn, and QAnon champion Ron Watkins for policy violations related to QAnon.

Parler

Apple and Google have told the “free speech” social media app Parler that it must begin moderating its users content, following violence at the US Capitol this week. The app — a Twitter alternative popular among Donald Trump supporters and the far-right —  has faced renewed scrutiny for its role in the planning of the attacks.

On Friday, as pressure grew for Apple and Google to remove it from their stores, Google suspended Parler from the Play Store, citing “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.”
