Donald Trump files a complaint to recover his Twitter account

Banned from Twitter in January 2021 following the attack on the Capitol by his supporters, the former President of the United States, Donald Trump, filed Friday, October 1, a request for a preliminary injunction against the social network, in court from Miami to reactivate their account.

After filing a complaint against Facebook, Google and Twitter last July, the former US president repeats the offense against the last cited social network.

Despite his 88 million Twitter followers, the platform had banned him for sharing misinformation regarding possible electoral fraud during the presidential elections, leading to the invasion of the Capitol by its most outspoken supporters.

Censorship deplored by its lawyers

In this request, Donald Trump’s lawyers regretted a growing censorship of the most significant social networks against their client.

“Twitter exerts a degree of power and control over political discourse in this country which is immeasurable, historically unprecedented and deeply dangerous for open democratic debate,” said the defense of the American politician according to the Bloomberg agency, relayed by Reuters.

The complaint filed by the Trump camp also reports abusive censorship of the social network throughout the tenure of the former head of state, citing blockages for “misleading information” and “glorification of violence”.

Donald Trump’s lawyers drew a parallel with the Taliban, who are allowed to tweet regularly about their victories in Afghanistan while the Twitter block is still active for Joe Biden’s predecessor.
