Facebook’s suspension of President Donald Trump’s account is to be reviewed by its new Oversight Board.
The company set up the board, which it says is independent, last year, to rule on controversial moderation decisions.
Mr Trump, whose account was frozen “indefinitely” on January 7, will be able to submit a user statement to a five-member case-review panel.
Its ruling will be binding and apply to Instagram also. Twitter has already given Mr Trump an outright ban.
