Twitter says the account will be locked until three tweets that were posted about Wednesday’s Capitol protests are removed. The company says the tweets violate its Civic Integrity policy.
Twitter says that if the tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.
Twitter adds that Trump’s account faces permanent suspension if there are future violations of its policies.
