The battle against big tech continues.
President Donald Trump asked a federal judge to have his Twitter account restored.
The suit not only states he was improperly suspended but also that Twitter was improperly censoring his tweets.
Former President Trump has asked a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to restore his account, arguing the company improperly suspended him after receiving pressure from members of Congress.
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,” the Friday filing read, Bloomberg reported.
The filing also claims that Twitter improperly censored his content while he was on the platform by branding his tweets with tags like “misleading information” and other partisan labels.
While Trump is banned from Twitter, the Taliban still have an active Twitter account.
The filing also argues that Twitter had selectively enforced its policies, noting that the Taliban appeared on the platform in August.
“Over the weeks that followed, Twitter allowed the Taliban to tweet regularly about their military conquests and victories across Afghanistan. The Taliban’s Twitter account is active to this day,” the filing states.
