Social media giants, Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday opted to bar President Donald Trump from posting for the next 24 hours.

Facebook in a statement cited policy violations on the president’s page.

Meanwhile, Twitter on its part said that President Donald Trump’s account was locked due to his tweets about the election.

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