It was the first time Twitter has banned a head of state although Trump still has access to the official @WhiteHouse and @POTUS accounts but will lose this when his presidential term ends.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump was locked out of his account for 12 hours after he called attackers as patriots.
A large number of his supporters entered the complex as the US Congress attempted to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. Four of the civilians and a police officer died amid the riots.
US President said he would look at building his own platform.
