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.
He warmed the mood in the country. Twitter, with more than 80 million users followed by him, was his most important communication platform up to that point. The ex-president is fighting against having his account blocked for a long time.
One of the big questions is whether Trump can return to the network after Twitter’s potential takeover of tech billionaire Elon Musk. Trump recently said he doesn’t want to go back to Twitter, even if he could. However, presence on the podium could be important for a potential candidacy in the 2024 presidential election. (SDA)
