These responses from Twitter and Facebook were certainly necessary, but sadly, they are also way, way too late. It was Trump and the videos and posts he shared online that galvanized supporters to violently mob the Capitol
and blatantly attack democracy yesterday. He has repeatedly used his social media presence to spread disinformation
and assert that the election was stolen, which has only spurred his supporters on. Last night, BuzzFeed News reported
that Facebook employees, upset that the platform they worked on had contributed to this insurrection, spoke out on the company's internal message board, calling for Trump's removal yesterday, but the company silenced them. According to Buzzfeed News, "Administrators froze comments on at least three threads in which employees had discussed removing Trump from the site." Today, though, Zuckerberg did what the employees were demanding, but we're not giving him any credit.
