BREAKING: Trump files lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter and Google
By Jenny Goldsberry
Former President Trump announced Wednesday morning he is the lead class representative in a lawsuit being filed with the Southern District of Florida against big tech. His targets include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
Trump is seeking a prompt return of his social media accounts. Facebook and Twitter declined to comment, according to Axios. This comes weeks after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a law allowing users to sue social media platforms. Many predicted the governor signed it with Trump in mind.
However, during the press conference, Trump also alluded that he might not join the platforms ever again.
Facebook announced recently that it will end former President Trump’s suspension on January 7, 2023, two years after his account was taken away. On the other hand, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that banning President Donald Trump from the platform was the “right decision” but recognized it has “real and significant ramifications.”
The former president recently shut down a blog he started since being banned from these platforms. But his spokesman alluded that he would be joining a new platform.
