Former President Donald Trump is suffering from the withdrawal of Twitter. With no viable way to resolve it since Twitter cut him off, Trump turned to a federal judge to rule on his case, hoping the legal system would force the company to allow him to tweet again (preferably in capital letters and with lots of exclamation points). ).
Trump filed a preliminary ban on Friday in the U.S. District Court for the South District of Florida and asked the judge to temporarily return his @realDonaldTrump account to Twitter as he fights against the company’s permanent ban on the courts. The former president claims he is likely to win his case, where he claims a Twitter ban violates the First Amendment, as well as Florida’s deceptive and unfair trade practices law and is a new state law against deformation.
In the court filing you can find in full over u Verge, Trump claims that failing to comply with the preliminary ban or posting it on social media would cause him and his 88 million followers on Twitter irreparable damage. Apparently it was because of his followers they are not allowed to receive his messages or comment on them.
In addition, the former president claims that his constant absence on Twitter would cause irreparable damage to the Republican Party.
“[By] de-platforming the presumed boss and the most popular member of the Republican Party, cutting him off from the most efficient and direct forms of communication with potential voters, [Twitter] threatens irreparable damage to the Republican Party’s prospects in the 2022 and 2024 elections, ”the court said in a statement.
But that’s not all. It is obvious that Trump has also been damaged because he could lose his donor and trading platforms and ability to support local political candidates.
Enter a sad tune played on the world’s smallest violin. Twitter told Gizmodo that there were no comments on the preliminary ban on Saturday.
Twitter banned Trump On January 8, two days after he gathered a crowd of his supporters to storm the American Capitol and stop the confirmation of the victory of President Joe Biden. Then the company said there was a risk the former president’s tweets could further incite violence. In particular, it was said that two Trump tweets, in which he said that the people who voted for him “will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way !!!” and not to attend Biden’s inauguration, in violation of its glorification of the policy of violence.
Trump made the request class actions against Twitter, Google and Facebook – all of which barred him from accessing their platforms to some extent – in July for violating his First Amendment rights. Since he was no longer welcome on popular social media, the former president launched a blog in May entitled, From Donald J. Trump’s desk. He imprisoned him a month later, with reports stating that Trump was embarrassed lack of blog readers.
While it’s obvious that Trump craves to tweet again – and rage to the world – Twitter is a nicer place without him. I mean, sometimes it can still be a poisonous swamp, but there’s at least one problem less.
