According to a US media report on the 7th local time, former US President Donald Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Twitter, Facebook and Google over the banned account. Trump held a press conference on the 7th local time, demanding that the court impose punitive damages on these social media giants and stop censorship of the American people. According to reports, Twitter permanently blocked Trump’s account, while Facebook only temporarily suspended his account. When the account no longer poses a public safety risk, it may be restored in 2023. At the same time, Trump was also suspended indefinitely from using YouTube, Snapchat and other platform accounts.

Although it is ridiculous, it is normal for Trump. A talk show actor cannot lose his stage. Its importance is like that of Biden being president without Harris. After Trump lost his Twitter account, he is currently mainly sending his views to supporters through mass emails, and there is still no progress in building his own social media as he claims. So I really need to get these accounts back! The main basis for Trump’s lawsuit is still freedom of speech. “Congress shall not enact laws on the following matters: establishing a religion or prohibiting freedom of religion, depriving freedom of speech or freedom of the press, or depriving the people of the right to peaceful assembly and petition to the government.” And Trump is seeking to expand the lawsuit. Class action status, which also means that he will represent the interests of other users of Twitter, Facebook and Google-these users claim that they have been unfairly silenced. In addition to initiating a lawsuit against the company, he also filed three individual lawsuits-against Facebook CEO Zuckerberg; against Twitter CEO Dorsey, against Google CEO Pichai. It can be seen that Trump has worked hard to get his social account back. Although Trump has a huge momentum this time, his probability of winning is still very small. Because despite Trump’s sacrifice of the First Amendment to the Constitution, his post-election remarks (“great patriots” will make a “great voice” and they will not “be disrespected or disrespectful in any form”. Fair treatment”), and the subsequent congressional riots, are really indifferent to the word “peace”, and it is difficult to make a strong argument. Moreover, the First Amendment protects people from government actions, and technology companies are not government actors. Twitter is not a government, but a private company. Its decision to allow or prohibit speech is not subject to any restrictions by the First Amendment. Instead, Twitter’s decision is protected by the First Amendment. The three major platforms have already issued statements stating that Trump is banned out of public safety considerations. After all, Trump repeatedly alleged that the results of the U.S. election were “distorted” without evidence. In their view, the matter has long been concluded, so they did not comment on the lawsuit initiated by Trump. But this does not prevent Trump from being confident. “We will achieve a historic victory for American freedom and freedom of speech,” Trump said at a press conference held at the Bedminster Golf Course in New Jersey. Although the probability of Trump winning is very small, I still hope that a miracle will happen. Not everyone has the ability to bring down the United States, and since he stepped down, I haven’t written a paragraph for a long time.
