Youtube suspended the channel of Donald Trump, president of the USA., who will not be able to upload new content for the next 7 days, the time remaining for the political leader who faces similar measures in other social networks after his followers storm the Capitol. YouTube explains on its official Twitter account that the measure was taken “in light of concerns about the continued potential for violence.”
The measure imposed by Youtube supposes that Donald trump “temporarily unable to upload new content for a minimum of 7 days. Given current concerns, we will also indefinitely disable President Trump’s channel comments, as we have done with other channels where there are security concerns. “
Youtube detailed that, after a review, he proceeded to delete the new content uploaded to the channel of Donald trump for “violating” their policies, without going into further detail. This is the latest in a series of measures adopted by social networks after Trump supporters attacked the US Legislative complex on January 6, in events that caused five deaths, including a police officer.
Twitter also censors Trump
