By now you've probably heard President Trump's social media accounts have been locked by Facebook and Twitter, making them inaccessible.

However, a statement released by the social media giants appears to expand that 'ban' to all photos, and videos related to the riots in Washington D.C.

Twitter released this statement Wednesday:

"In regard to the ongoing situation in Washington, D.C., we are working proactively to protect the health of the public conversation occurring on the service and will take action on any content that violates the Twitter rules."

Facebook said, according to The Blaze online, said it would ban photos and videos from the event in D.C. because of   "promotion of criminal activity."

Doesn't sound like limiting it to the President or large media entities, does it?  Of course it takes them a long time to peruse through the millions of accounts, but don't be surprised if you share others content, or post your own original about the D.C. event, it might disappear.

YouTube also deleted videos the President posted urging people to peacefully leave the Capitol area and go home.
