U.S. Judge Dismisses Trump's Lawsuit Challenging Twitter Ban

A U.S. Judge on Friday, Dismissed Trump's Lawsuit against Twitter Inc., that challenged his Suspension from the Platform.

In a written ruling, U.S. District Judge James Donato in San Francisco, Rejected Trump's Argument, that Twitter violated his Right to Freedom of Speech guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Twitter and other Social Media platforms Banned Trump from their Services, after a Mob of his Supporters Illegally Attacked the U.S. Capitol, in a Deadly Riot on Jan. 6th, 2021.

That Assault followed a Speech by Trump in which he reiterated False Claims that his Election Loss in November, was because of widespread Fraud, an assertion Rejected by Multiple Courts and State Election Officials.

Trump's Lawyers alleged in a Court filing last year, that Twitter "exercises a degree of power and control over political discourse in this country that is immeasurable, historically unprecedented, and profoundly dangerous to open democratic debate."

At the time of Removing Trump's Account Permanently, Twitter said his tweets had Violated the Platform's Policy barring "glorification of violence." The Company said then that Trump's tweets that led to his Removal were "highly likely" to encourage People to replicate what happened in the Capitol Riots.

Before he was Blocked, Trump had more than 88 million Followers on Twitter, and used it as his Social Media Megaphone.

The Rally Permit stated: No March to the Capital, but individuals could go to the Capital after to Vote Count was finished. The White House was aware of the Permit Rules.

So when Trump told the Rally to go to the Captial: If someone incites someone to commit a Crime and they Commit the Crime, would the Person who did the Inciting be Charged with both Crimes? Yes, they could be Charged with both Crimes.
