WASHINGTON, US: Since the brutal attack on the US Capitol by President Donald Trump's supporters, social media platform Twitter shut down US President Donald Trump's account permanently. 

Over the years, Trump used @realDonaldTrump for proclamations, accusations, and misinformation.

In a blog post, Twitter said that "we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence."

After the attack on the Capitol and calls for impeachment, President Trump conceded the election to his democrat counterpart Joe Biden, adding that he will part take in the peaceful transition of power. 

Trump also slammed the perpetrators of the Capitol violence by stating that they will "pay" for their crimes. 

His concession provoked anger and conspiracy theories among some of his most ardent followers, who said that the president "betrayed" them.

President Trump also announced that he will not attend Biden's inaugural ceremony on January 20th. 

US President-elect Joe Biden welcomed this announcement saying that it is the one they both agreed. 

"He's been an embarrassment to the country. He's not fit to serve. He exceeded even my worst notions about him. He's one of the most incompetent presidents in the history of the United States of America," said Biden.
