“If you are removed from the platform, you are removed from the platform,” Ned Sagal, Twitter CFO, stated, and added that the ban applies to “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or whether you are a former or current public official.”

Shortly after the breaking of the Capitol building, on Jan. 9, Trump’s Twitter account was permanently suspended. Twitter alleged that Trump’s final tweets had provoked violence, although the former president was not criminally charged.

Right now, Donald Trump is defending himself in the Senate’s impeachment trial, although chances of the upper chamber convicting him are low, because the Senate requires a 67-vote threshold to convict a president.

Days after Trump’s Twitter ban, CEO Jack Dorsey said that the company, based in San Francisco, set a dangerous precedent with its divisive decision to remove the former president.

Dorsey tweeted:

“Having to take these actions fragment [sic] the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Besides Twitter, Trump was banned from Facebook, Google, and a few more Big Tech firms around the same time. In the meantime, “free speech” social media platform Parler was taken down from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play store almost at the same time; and a few days later, Amazon Web Services removed Parler and basically took the entire site down.

The assembled efforts against the former president provoked warnings from conservatives, civil liberties groups, German leader Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban [Trump] from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?”- Dorsey also tweeted when Trump’s account was banned.

He continued

“I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”
