Twitter defeats Trump in court

However, Judge Trump and his attorneys gave the option to resubmit them in an amended form. She said in the ruling that the plaintiffs would not argue from a strong position. She added that Twitter is a private company and that the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech, applies to government interference – but not to alleged interference by private companies.

Twitter, Facebook and YouTube banned Trump’s accounts in January 2021, shortly before the end of his term. The impetus was the storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, and he expressed sympathy with the attackers. He also claimed – until today – without any evidence that his victory in the presidential elections in November was stolen by fraud.
