On Wednesday, American photo-sharing app Snapchat permanently deleted the outgoing US president's account, APA reports citing AFP.

The move comes as the company fears that POTUS will use his Snapchat account to cause turmoil in the upcoming 20 January inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

Snapchat first temporally suspended Trump's account last week after the company concluded that the outgoing president promotes and spreads "hate speech, and incites violence" in violation of Snapchat rules against misinformation.

"Last week we announced an indefinite suspension of president Trump's Snapchat account," Snapchat spokesman said, adding that "In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account.”
