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.

 1,393  428  408

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.

 66,395  2,270  6,159

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.

 690,449  62,099  200,762

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.

 60,053  3,754  5,147

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.

 43,112  1,090  3,844

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

 206,421  12,500  52,193

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.

 36,978  2,202  3,666

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.

 36,580  775  3,800

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.

 250,134  20,052  67,261

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.

 212,047  12,645  58,097

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

 1,545  330  253

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  306  391

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

 2,058  463  268

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.

 7,393  3,037  1,479

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.

 759  499  286

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.

 352  95  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.

 267  76  56

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  538  367

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.
