We're keeping you informed of all the steps we're taking to protect the public conversation. We’ve summarized our recent enforcement actions and what you can expect from us moving forward.

 1,327  338  388

In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.

 66,642  2,284  6,182

After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

 692,732  62,314  201,869

However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.

 60,276  3,758  5,163

Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.

 43,234  1,089  3,846

Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.

 207,203  12,541  52,557

We’ll continue to evaluate the situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter. We will keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary.

 37,134  2,207  3,690

Our public interest policy — which has guided our enforcement action in this area for years — ends where we believe the risk of harm is higher and/or more severe.

 36,726  775  3,821

As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy.

 251,137  20,125  67,641

This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.

 212,968  12,681  58,478

Threats of and calls to violence are against the Twitter Rules, and we are enforcing our policies accordingly.

 1,545  331  254

In addition, we have been significantly restricting engagement with Tweets labeled under our Civic Integrity Policy due to the risk of violence. This means these labeled Tweets will not be able to be replied to, Retweeted, or liked.

 2,429  308  389

We are also exploring other escalated enforcement actions and will keep the public updated with any significant developments.

 2,056  465  267

In regard to the ongoing situation in Washington, D.C., we are working proactively to protect the health of the public conversation occurring on the service and will take action on any content that violates the Twitter Rules.

 7,401  3,045  1,482

As the global distribution of #COVID19 vaccines begins, we’re providing guidance on how we’ll address potentially harmful misleading content about these vaccines and help people stay informed.

 761  499  284

This policy already prohibits language that dehumanizes people on the basis of religion, caste, age, disability, or disease.

Research shows that dehumanizing speech can lead to real-world harm, and we want to ensure that more people—globally—are protected.

 351  94  79

To help keep more people safe, we’ll continue our work with global third-party experts to further expand this policy, and update you along the way.

 268  76  57

Our rules continually evolve to help keep people safe. Today, we’re expanding our hateful conduct policy to address language that dehumanizes people on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin.

 1,137  542  369

We are appreciative of our partnerships with nonprofit groups around the world that help to ensure we are sharing the latest and most helpful resources in our #ThereisHelp prompts.
