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.…
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.…
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.…
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.

At Twitter, we’re committed to protecting people’s ability to express their fundamental civil rights safely — especially voting. That’s why we’re expanding our Civic Integrity Policy to protect against attempts to undermine vital democratic processes.…
Under this expanded policy, we will label or remove false or misleading information intended to undermine public confidence in an election or other civic process. We will begin enforcing this updated policy in 7 days.
Amid #COVID19, the conversation happening on Twitter has become even more important and nuanced as more voters turn to mail-in voting and more people are mobilized online. We’re updating our policies and enforcement guidance to better reflect that changing conversation.

On #WorldSuicidePreventionDay and every day, we can all promote awareness and encourage action to prevent suicide and self harm. #WSPD2020
Twitter is where people can share their truths and find comfort in community. Since the launch of our #thereishelp prompts in 2018, we’ve continued to expand the feature to connect people with resources when searching certain terms related to suicide and self harm.
This month, we’ve expanded the feature to six more countries. Access to support is key. Suicide rates can increase in prolonged crises, and COVID-19 has left many people vulnerable to mental health problems. If you or anyone you know is suffering, remember #ThereIsHelp.
