YouTube is accelerating its enforcement of election misinformation and voter fraud claims against Trump and other channels.

Instagram banned Donald Trump from posting on his Facebook accounts for at least the next two weeks until the transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden is complete.

Snapchat disabled Trump's Snapchat account Wednesday because it believes the account promotes and spreads hate and incites violence, a spokesperson said.

TikTok is removing content violations and redirecting hashtags like #stormthecapitol and #patriotparty to its community guidelines.

Reddit has banned the subreddit group "r/DonaldTrump".

Pinterest has been limiting hashtags related to pro-Trump topics such as #StopTheSteal since around the November election, a spokesperson said.

A Coup of Pelosi’s Own: The House of Representatives decided to intervene in the military chain of command "to protect the world from President Trump". Mrs. Pelosi told her Democratic colleagues that she spoke Friday morning to Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, “to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.” (We support her initiative and share her concerns, i must admit. it would be nice if Biden will blocked from it too, for a peaceful world)
