Although, San Francisco police were prepared for a big protest planned at Twitter’s HQ today, no one showed up.

San Francisco police were tipped off that a pro-Trump rally was planned for today, Monday, January 11 outside the Twitter headquarters on Market Street in response to Twitter’s ban of Trump. On Friday, Twitter had announced a permanent suspension of @realDonaldTrump, Trump’s personal Twitter account, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”

Gizmodo reports that the protest was organized online at TheDonald.win and in private Facebook groups. KRON4 also reported that the police had a flyer announcing the protest. San Francisco police were prepared with a heavy presence surrounding Twitter’s headquarters along with barricades, and police all along the streets from Market Street to Mission Street.

Thankfully San Francisco was prepared, but the protest did not materialize.
