Former President Donald Trump wants to enforce through a federal judge to regain access to his blocked Twitter account. This is evidenced by documents filed by his attorneys in a Miami court. Twitter and other social media platforms enthralled Trump early this year after supporters of him stormed the Capitol.
Trump had more than 88 million followers on his Twitter account and used the platform frequently as a means of communication. According to the Republican, Twitter “exerts a degree of power and control over the political discourse in this country that is immeasurable, historically unprecedented and extremely dangerous to the open democratic debate,” his lawyers claim to the court in the request.
The former president finds Twitter unfairly “censored” him by putting warnings on his posts. Since the presidential election in November, the platform posted warnings to reports from the president in which he was spreading inaccuracies, such as the outcome of the election. The messaging site noted that information in those tweets is “potentially misleading” or “questioned”.
