Almost all of President Trump's social media accounts were suspended after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Trump banned on Twitter
Trump was first banned from using Facebook and Instagram on Jan. 7 (Singapore time).
Twitter initially announced that Trump's account would be locked until three tweets that violated its Civic Integrity policy were removed.
This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 7, 2021
Following that, Twitter announced on Jan. 9 (Singapore time) that Trump's account @realDonaldTrump had been permanently suspended, citing the "risk of further incitement of violence".

Twitter is arguably Trump's primary platform for getting his messages out to his followers.
Other accounts suspended or have tweets deleted
Besides Trump's official account, other accounts have been suspended or have certain tweets deleted after Trump allegedly tried using them, including his campaign account @TeamTrump.

He doesn't seem to be taking the news especially well.
It's here. Track account suspensions related to Trump's whack-a-mole on Twitter at this dashboard, part of a series of trackers on Trump's final days (including resignations and calls for the president's removal). Will be updated with new reports.https://t.co/2ZOeJ9GPwp pic.twitter.com/NltLxxxCuA— Benjy Renton (@bhrenton) January 9, 2021
