Permanent Ban

Permanent bans are the most aggressive form of censorship. This form of censorship forever prohibits social media users from posting, sharing or interacting with content in any way. But sometimes, social media companies will quickly reverse their "permanent bans" after issuing them. Several social media platforms applied permanent bans to former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol Riot, after legacy news outlets wrongly linked the former president to the turbulent events of that day.
