San Francisco police getting ready for Pro-Trump protest at Twitter headquarters Monday, fearing a possible retaliation after the social media company permanently shut down Trump’s account.
Twitter permanently banned Trump’s account on Friday, citing “risk of further incitement of violence” following the deadly riot that took place at the Capitol on Wednesday.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that police have been in contact with company representatives and say they will have enough resources to respond if protesters shows up.
“While we respect people’s right to express their views, we’ve been transparent about the factors leading up to our decision last week” a Twitter spokesperson said in an email to the Chronicle. The spokesperson stressed that the company’s highest priority is the safety of its workers.
The Chronicle reports that posts on TheDonald.win, a right-wing forum created after r/The_Donald was banned from Reddit, advised people to bring megaphones and zip ties to “citizen arrest violent agitators.”
