America’s 45th President, Donald Trump, gets a strike on his YouTube account because of his recent video violating YouTube’s policies.
President Donald Trump got his YouTube channel suspended for a week or longer. YouTube removed a recently uploaded video from Donald Trump that was deemed as inciting violence. The channel got its first strike and is now under upload and streaming restriction. Under YouTubes policies, any channel that gets its first strike will be suspended for a minimum of seven days. This isn’t the first social media account that got restricted for the President as Twitch also suspended President Trump’s account for the same reason. If ever Donald Trump’s YouTube channel will get its second strike, this will lead to a two-week suspension. Anything after that, a third strike, and YouTube will give his channel a permanent ban.
As Trump got his suspension lift on his Twitch Channel last July 14 for the hateful speech, YouTube takes extra steps of indefinitely disabling the comment section on older videos that Trump has uploaded on his channel for safety reasons.
Twitter, arguably President Trump’s favorite social media platform, also got banned the president. The President had around 88 million followers on Twitter, before it was banned and deactivated. Other social media sites like Facebook and Instagram have also followed suit on banning his accounts. These bans were clearly for safety reasons as four people were killed in the raid on the Capitol and to stop Trump from encouraging more raids from his supporters.
As Trump’s Twitter account got suspended, a professional Hearthstone player, Jeffrey “Trump” Shih, was mistaken for Donald Trump and got a massive flood of followers. The former Starcraft 2 pro then tweeted about the development and cleared up the misunderstanding, stating that he wasn’t the President that they were looking for, but rather, just a professional player of Blizzard’s popular card game Hearthstone.
One participant from the Capitol raid was spotted with the Outsider’s Mark tattoo from the game Dishonored on his left hand. This caused quite a misunderstanding among the wider audience who saw the tattoo and thought it was an Antifa symbol. Harvey Smith, co-creator of the Dishonored series, posted on Twitter to debunk the conspiracy theory by showing how the tattoo came from his game.
Meanwhile, Twitch has removed the classic “PogChamp” emote following the comments made by the face of the emote “encouraging further violence” after what happened in the Capitol. Twitch indefinitely suspended Trump’s account to disable him from broadcasting the use of violence to his supporters, unlike how other politicians have used the platforms in streaming games and other entertainment.
