WASHINGTON (AP) — Twitter permanently suspended President Trump from its platform, citing 'risk of further incitement of violence.'

Twitter citing "the context around them," and saying "In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action."

This is the second time the platform has blocked the president's account since the riots at the Capitol.

This is a developing story.
