Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
The big picture: It's the latest in a string of platforms to take action against Trump's accounts following the historic pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
Twitch and Snapchat disabled Trump's accounts.
Shopify took down two online stores affiliated with the president.
Facebook and Instagram banned Trump from posting for at least the next two weeks, and faced calls to boot him permanently, including from former First Lady Michelle Obama and high-ranking Hill Democrats.
Twitter froze Trump out of his account Wednesday before reinstating him Thursday once he deleted problematic tweets. [He kept it up so now he's permanently blocked.]
YouTube says it's accelerating its enforcement of voter fraud claims against President Trump and others based on Wednesday's events.
TikTok is removing content violations and redirecting hashtags like #stormthecapitol and #patriotparty to its community guidelines.
