WASHINGTON (WJW)– Twitter is requiring President Donald Trump delete three tweets on Wednesday.
The social media platform cited the violent situation in Washington D.C. when Pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol, prompting a lockdown and delaying approval of the Electoral College results.
Twitter said the posts, which included a video, were in violation of its civic integrity policy. Trump’s account will be locked for 12 hours.
“If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked,” Twitter said.
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.
“There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened, where they could take it away from all of us, from me, from you, from all of us. It was a fraudulent election,” Trump said in one of the tweets in question.

House urges Pence to help remove Trump; impeachment vote up next
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. House rushed ahead Tuesday toward impeaching President Donald Trump for the deadly Capitol attack, taking time only to try to persuade his vice president to push him out first. Trump showed no remorse, blaming impeachment itself for the “tremendous anger” in America.
Already scheduled to leave office next week, Trump is on the verge of becoming the only president in history to be twice impeached. His incendiary rhetoric at a rally ahead of the Capitol uprising is now in the impeachment charge against him, even as the falsehoods he spread about election fraud are still being championed by some Republicans.Twitter is requiring President Donald Trump delete three tweets on Wednesday.
Market reacting to Twitter, Facebook’s ban of President Trump
Twitter stock dropped more than 10 percent Monday, but is only down two percent Tuesday

OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — Following President Trump’s permanent ban from tech giants like Twitter and Facebook, many supporters of the president are not happy with the barring social media from the leader of the free-world.
The market is now responding, as Twitter stock is dropping, but will this loss be as permanent as some intend?
Twitter stock dropped more than 10 percent Monday, but is only down two percent Tuesday.
The stock dropped $5 since Twitter permanently banned President Trump Friday, but some reports say it lost billions in terms of market capitalization. And according to Business Insider, Facebook has lost $34-Billion in market capitalization as well.
Because of the Section 230 Debate in Washington, social media stocks are going down, but if changes come to the bill, there will be an increase in cost to the companies either way.
Any change to the bill will cause an increased cost to those companies. Whether there is more regulation, that will cause an increase in the cost of running the organization, or if they repeal it, they could be open to more lawsuits which would cause higher cost of their legal work they’re needed to do. And that’s why they’re trending down right now.

But if there is an increase in cost, Holloway says the likes of Twitter have ways to pay up. They’ll start charging advertisers more money.
There is uncertainty in the market across the board as a new administration is set to come in.
Holloway says we’ll only really start to tell if the banning of certain users will hurt social media giants in their quarterly release.
