Facebook and Instagram will suspend former US President Donald Trump’s accounts for another two years

Facebook and Instagram barred the former US President Donald Trump for two years following the Capitol Riots.

The social media giant said Trump’s actions were “a severe violation of our rules”.

Trump said the move was “an insult” to the millions who voted for him in last year’s presidential election.

“They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our country can’t take this abuse anymore!” Trump said.

The social media giant is also ending a policy that shields politicians from some content moderation rules, saying it would no longer give politicians immunity for deceptive or abusive content.

Trump has also been banned from Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, Twitch and other social media platforms over the January riot.

Tesla is in the spotlight again, with Germany’s road traffic agency recalling models Y and 3 due to a fault in the automatic emergency call system

It’s a fault that could possibly impact around 59,000 vehicles globally.

Germany’s watchdog says a software flaw is causing a breakdown of the e-Call, a system designed to alert authorities after a serious accident.

The glitch follows the company delivered almost 18 per cent fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter than in the previous.

This is largely due to China’s Covid-19-related shutdowns and the ongoing supply chain crunch.

Meanwhile, CEO Elon Musk says Tesla’s new factories in both Texas and Berlin are “losing billions of dollars”.
