Press review from 4 to 10 January 2021
For the risk of "incitement to violence", Twitter decides to permanently suspend Donald Trump's account. Of course the former president's wrath resonates in the White House through a press release:
"I had expected it. By suspending my account they want to silence me, they want to silence the voices of 75 million great patriots who voted for me. They will never silence us. We are dealing with various other sites and will have a big announcement shortly, in the meantime we are considering the idea of building a new platform".
He adds Trump to his supporters.
The suspension decision strongly irritates his son Donald Jr, who tries to appeal to freedom of speech "dead with big tech".
Twitter has decided to take responsibility after such a choice, exposing itself to a lot of criticism, but always avoiding aiding and abetting violence.
In a filed note, Twitter explained that further plans for future protests had already taken hold on the platform, including the hypothesis of a second attack on Congress on January 17, shortly before Joe Biden's inauguration in the White House.
