“Last week, we announced an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s Snapchat account and assessed what long-term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community. In the interest of public safety, and based on its attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech and incitement to violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to close definitely his account. “
Snapchat’s first steps to curb Trump began in June, when he stopped promoting his feed in his Discover section. The service has since recorded dozens of times its posts violated its policies on hate speech or incitement to violence, and deleted the posts. Unlike other social networks that present themselves as a town square, Snap does not offer itself as an unmoderated news feed. No matter what you call him, he’s now on the list with Twitter, Twitch, Facebook, and others no longer offering Donald Trump access.
