Last week, as many social networks took steps to ban or restrict President Trump’s posts after violent riots that attacked Capitol Hill, Snap suspended his account indefinitely. Today, the company announced that the closure is permanent, in the following statement.

Snap:

“Last week, we announced an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s Snapchat account and evaluated what long-term actions are in the best interest of our Snapchat community.

In the interests of public safety and on the basis of its attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech and inciting violence that constitute sained violations of our policies, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account.”

Snapchat’s first steps toward limiting Trump began in June when it stopped promoting its feed-in its Discover section.

The service has since recorded dozens of times where its posts have violated its policies on hate speech or incitement to violence and removed posts.

Unlike other social networks that resemble themselves as a city square, Snap doesn’t offer itself as an unmoderated newsfeed. Whatever you want to call it, it’s now on the list of Twitter, Twitch, Facebook, and others that no longer offer access to Donald Trump.
