Among them was model and TV presenter Chrissy Teigen, who was called a “dirty mouth” in a tweet from Mr. Trump.
She was delighted with its ban, writing: “AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH ..”
The outgoing president’s access to his primary means of communication was revoked definitively on Friday, the social media website citing “the risk of further incitement to violence.”
Facebook and Instagram also suspended Mr. Trump’s accounts following scenes of chaos in Washington DC on Wednesday, when his supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Teigen wasn’t the only celebrity reacting to the news.
Veep actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and wrote, “What the fuck took you so long @jack? ”
Marvel actor Mark Ruffalo said, “Thanks @Twitter and the board. BanTrumpSaveDemocracy RemoveTrumpNow. ”
Oscar-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg tweeted “Finally”, while author Stephen King also praised Twitter for the move and said it “makes me proud to be a twitterhead.”
Mr Trump, who is due to step down on January 20, issued a statement via the POTUS account saying he had negotiated with other websites and promised a “big announcement soon.”
He added: “Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH. They all aim to promote a radical left platform where some of the world’s most vicious people are allowed to speak freely. ”
It was quickly deleted.
