Snapchat plans to permanently ban President Trump’s account from the social media platform once President-elect Joe Biden takes office later this month, a Snapchat spokesperson confirmed to The Hill.
Axios first reported the decision Wednesday. A spokesperson for the platform told The Hill in an emailed statement that, following the platform’s announcement last week of an indefinite suspension on Trump’s account in the aftermath of the pro-Trump violent siege on the Capitol, Snpachat has “been assessing what long term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account,” the spokesperson added.
Axios explained in a Twitter post, “The Trump campaign and digital team relied on Snapchat as a key platform to reach younger audiences before the company started limiting its reach in June. The majority of Snapchat’s users are under 30.”
