Platforms take action against Trump after Capitol mob attack

Online platforms have taken action against President Donald Trump in response to his encouragement of a pro-Trump mob that on January 6th. That day, Facebook and Twitter removed some of Trump’s social media posts, a video, and instituted short-term bans on Trump’s accounts.

But on January 7th, platforms began taking more drastic action, with Facebook deciding to “indefinitely,” and Shopify (which sold Make America Great Again hats). More actions may follow.
