Trump petitions the court to Force Twitter to reinstate his account

Following the attack on the US Capitol in January, the company suspended the former president’s account.

Donald Trump has petitioned a federal judge in Florida to compel Twitter to restore his account, which was stopped in January in the aftermath of the attack on the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

Trump’s use of the platform was a defining feature of his 2016 presidential campaign and one he maintained in administration. He used it to assassinate adversaries and control news cycles.

His tweets frequently elicited laughter and outrage, but he also posted stuff that was bigoted and dangerously inflammatory on a range of subjects, from immigration to the origins of the coronavirus to inciting people to oppose Democratic governors.

Trump’s attorneys filed a motion seeking a preliminary injunction against Twitter and its CEO, Jack Dorsey, in a US federal court in Miami on Friday. According to the motion, they argue that Twitter is suppressing Trump in violation of his First Amendment rights.

Twitter permanently suspended Trump days after his supporters stormed the Capitol building in an attempt to prevent Congress from declaring Joe Biden’s presidential victory. Twitter expressed worries that Trump might exacerbate unrest. In a day of terrible violence, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, injuring dozens of people and killing five.

Trump had approximately 89 million Twitter followers before to the ban.

Trump was also suspended from Facebook and YouTube, both of which are owned by Google, for identical concerns that he would incite violence. Facebook’s suspension will continue two years, until 7 January 2023, at which point it will be reviewed. YouTube has been suspended indefinitely.

Trump sued all three major companies and their CEOs in July in the US district court for the southern district of Florida, alleging that he and other conservatives have been unlawfully suppressed. Trump submitted the application for a preliminary injunction as part of his action against Twitter.

    Twitter, Youtube and Google, are corrupt hypocrites.
    They receive hundred of millions in bribes to maintain their influence in ousting Trump.
    Biden and the Democrats do anything to win the election, including lying, deceiving, extreme lack of knowledge about currently knowing the facts about situations the U.S effecting the U.S civilians.
    Biden and dupporting Democrats should be court marshaled!
