A Federal Judge Has Dismissed Trump’s Bid To Lift The Permanent Twitter Ban

On Friday, a federal judge dismissed former President Donald Trump’s case against Twitter, which sought to restore his permanent suspension from the social media giant.

Because Twitter is a private firm, Trump’s argument that the ban violated his First Amendment right to free expression was not persuasive, according to San Francisco federal District Judge James Donato. Donato wrote that Trump’s suit failed to prove that his suspension was due to the government.

The ruling came almost two weeks after Trump told CNBC he would not return to Twitter even if his ban were lifted by Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX chief whose $44 billion offer to buy Twitter was recently accepted by the company’s board.

Twitter’s decision followed two tweets by Trump Friday afternoon that would end up being his last

The tweets violated the company’s policy against glorification of violence, Twitter said, and “these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks.”

The first tweet was about Trump’s supporters.”The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

The second indicated Trump did not plan to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Twitter banned the former president two days after last year’s January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
