Is Twitter is starting to remove his tweets or is he deleting them himself?

YouTube has removed president Donald Trump's most recent video baselessly challenging the 2020 presidential election results.

"We removed a video posted this afternoon to Donald Trump's channel that violated our policies regarding content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S.," Farshad Shadloo, YouTube spokesperson, said in an email to Insider. "We do allow copies of this video if uploaded with additional context and sufficient educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic (EDSA) value."

The president posted the minute-long video to social media amid an insurrection at the US Capitol building. Pro-Trump rioters broke into the House and Senate chambers to stop the counting of electoral votes in the 2020 general election.

Lawmakers and Vice President Mike Pence evacuated the building, and videos showed rioters breaking windows and stealing items.

Facebook removed the video as well, according to New York Times reporter Mike Isaac.

CNBC anchor Shep Smith told his producers to cut the tape during the network's live airing of Trump's video.

Trump praised his supporters who committed the violence, calling them "very special," but told them to "go home."

"This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people," Trump said. "We have to have peace. So go home, we love you, you're very special." There was no evidence of election fraud that support the president's claim.

President-elect Joe Biden called the violence an "insurrection" that "borders on sedition," and demanded Trump tell his supporters to back down.

"I call on President Trump to go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the Constitution and demand an end to this siege," Biden said.

Twitter has locked Trump’s account

Twitter has locked Donald Trump’s account for 12 hours and says it will ban him if he breaks its rules again.

The decision marks a major departure for the company, which has until now given the president special protections that stop him being punished for breaking its rules.

The site suggested those exemptions are no longer in effect and that one more post that breaks Twitter’s rules could leave Mr Trump suspended entirely.

The change of policy came after a series of tweets in which Mr Trump appeared to endorse the rioters who stormed the Capitol Building in support of the president.

In the posts, Mr Trump asked those involved to go home but called them “very special” and said “we love you”. He also repeated his false claim that he won the election.

Twitter had initially censured the tweets by stopping users from replying or sharing them, and placing a warning label on the posts that indicated they included heightened the risk of violence.

The posts then disappeared, though it was not clear whether they had been deleted by Mr Trump or by Twitter itself.

Now the company says that the president’s account will be locked and it could be suspended entirely if he continues to break the rules.

A suspension would mean that not only would Mr Trump be unable to share new posts, his old tweets would likely no longer be visible too.

“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,” Twitter wrote in a series of posts on its ‘Safety’ account.

"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.”

Mr Trump has repeatedly broken Twitter’s rules, with apparent violations rapidly increasing in the weeks just before and weeks since the election. But the company has long maintained that Mr Trump’s status as a newsworthy person and elected official mean that the posts should not be removed or hidden in the same way.

Instead, Twitter has looked to limit any potential danger from Mr Trump’s posts by applying an exclamation mark to them, alongside labels that explain any false claims. Almost every one of Mr Trump’s posts over the last day has received such a label.

The latest posts by Twitter suggest that policy of applying labels and specifically protecting Mr Trump’s account is no longer in effect, and that his account could soon be removed entirely.

Interesting to see the tweets that Trump chose to delete himself...I still think his feed should have been left up for all to see.
