Snapchat has also permanently banned President trump from using their social media platform, according to Politico.
“In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account,” a company spokesperson said.
The ban is indefinite.
The company emphasized that its primary use is between close friends.
Trump and many of his Republican allies, have decried his suspensions as part of an “unprecedented assault on free speech.”
A number of social media networks have ousted the president from their platforms since last week’s deadly attack on the Capitol by Trump’s supporters. Twitter and Facebook both put temporary suspensions on the president’s accounts shortly after, and Twitter permanently banned Trump on Friday, costing the president access to his preferred medium of communicating with the broader public.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Snapchat’s ban.
