President Trump has his Twitter account suspended for 12 hours 02

One of President Trump's now-removed tweets, calling for Americans to "go home with love & in peace". If Trump deletes the tweets that triggered Twitter, then they will unlock his accounts. If those tweets are not deleted in the next 12 hours, then his account will "remain locked".

Twitter censored his video calling for peace and for Americans to go home, and leave the Capitol building in DC... not allowing comments, re-tweets or shares of his tweet. It was not long after that, when Twitter locked President Trump's account.

"As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets".

"If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked. Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account".
