Twitter briefly locked Trump’s account earlier this week over bogus allegations that he encouraged violence at the U.S. Capitol.
Other high-profile conservative activists, Trump supporters, and allies have also been banned or seen dramatic drops in their followers. Lt. General Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell were both banned from Twitter earlier Friday evening.

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm, and given the renewed potential for violence surrounding this type of behavior in the coming days, we will permanently suspend accounts that are solely dedicated to sharing QAnon content,” Twitter told NBC in regards to their banning of Flynn and Powell.
As PJM’s Rick Moran noted earlier, the purge of all things and people connected to Trump is coming.
