PRINCE Harry sensationally claimed he warned the Twitter chief about the US Capitol riots the day before the deadly coup unfolded.
The Duke of Sussex said he told Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey the social media site was "allowing a coup to be staged".
Just one day later, Donald Trump supporters stormed the building leaving five people dead.
Twitter and other social media platforms – including Facebook – are now being investigated amid claims they enabled the bloody coup.
Harry made the surprising revelation during a RE:WIRED panel event on misinformation in the US.
He said: "Jack and I were emailing each other prior to January 6 when I warned him his platform was allowing a coup to be staged.
"That email was sent the day before.
"And then it happened, and I haven't heard from him since."
Trump fanatics violently forced their way into the US Capitol building on January 6 this year after the former president claimed the 2020 election was rigged.
More than 600 people in 40 states have been charged with participating in the riot, which led to a landmark second impeachment of Trump.

Harry, who was listed as the co-founder of Archewell at the RE:WIRED summit, also told how the "internet is being defined by hate, division and lies".
And he launched another attack on the media, saying: "I learned from a very early age that the incentives of publishing are not necessarily aligned with the incentives of truth."
He added: “I know the story all too well. I lost my mother to this self-manufactured rabidness and obviously I’m determined not to lose the mother to my children to the same thing.”
His comments came as wife Meghan Markle appeared in her first in-person interview since her bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey in March.
She discussed a range of topics – including cutting out coupons as a child, working as a waitress – and lobbying Republican senators for parental leave.
Meghan, who was quizzed as part of the New York Times' DealBook summit, also said her mental health is in a far better place now that she and Harry have stepped back from their work as senior royals.
