Email Service Suspends Trump’s Account, Cutting a Vital Link to His Supporters

As Big Tech draws a social media wall of silence around President Donald Trump, reports indicate that one of the Trump campaign’s email service providers has distanced itself from the president.

According to a string of Twitter postings from Dave Lee, a correspondent for the Financial Times, an email provider called Campaign Monitor had suspended the campaign’s account as of Thursday.

A statement from the company confirmed the account had been suspended but did not indicate the reason.

In permanently suspending Trump’s signature personal Twitter account Friday, Twitter said it acted “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” according to a blog post.

Twitter claimed the language used by Trump in two tweets was out of bounds, saying that his statement that he would not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden “is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate.”

Facebook announced Thursday that Trump would be blocked from using that platform at least through the end of his term, according to The New York Times.

“We believe the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote.
