US President Donald Trump has been permanently suspended from Twitter "due to the risk of further incitement of violence", the company says.

Some lawmakers and celebrities have been calling for years on Twitter to ban  Trump altogether. 

Trump was locked out of his account for 12 hours on Wednesday after he called the people who stormed the US Capitol "patriots".

Twitter warned then that it would ban Trump "permanently" if he breached the platform's rules again.After being allowed back on Twitter, Trump posted two tweets on Friday that the company cited as the final straws.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked Professor  Anat Ben David, an expert on social media at the Open University, if Twitter did the right thing.
