Washington Former US President Donald Trump has lost a legal battle over the shutdown of his Twitter account. A federal judge in the U.S. state of California on Friday dismissed a lawsuit filed by Trump. However, Judge Trump and his attorneys were given the option to resubmit them in a modified form. The judgment stated that the plaintiffs would not argue from a strong position. It said Twitter was a private entity and that the First Amendment, which protects freedom of expression, would apply to government intervention – but not to private interference.

Twitter As well as Facebook And Youtube froze Trump’s accounts shortly before the end of his term in January 2021. The US capital was attacked by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021 – and he expressed his condolences to the attackers. He said – even now – without any evidence that his victory in the November presidential election was stolen by fraud. He warmed the country’s atmosphere. Twitter, followed by more than 80 million users, was until then his most important communication platform. The former president has been fighting for a long time against freezing his account.

One of the big questions is whether Trump will be able to return to the network following the acquisition of technology billionaire Elon Musk by Twitter. Trump recently said he did not want to go back to Twitter, even if he could. However, being on stage as a potential candidate in the 2024 presidential election may be important.
