Twitch has suspended US President Donald Trump's account for the second time, following an insurrection yesterday that saw a mob of Trump supporters breach the US Capitol, resulting in four dead.

"In light of yesterday's shocking attack on the Capitol, we have disabled President Trump's Twitch channel," Twitch said in a statement to CNN.

"Given the current extraordinary circumstances and the President's incendiary rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence."

Twitch's actions follow similar suspensions handed down by Twitter on Wednesday and on Facebook and Instagram today -- with the former decision lasting for 12 hours from the time of the suspension, and the latter lasting "indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete," per Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
