The kids are on his lawn, and he damn well needs to tweet about it.

Former president and Florida resident Donald Trump is suing Twitter in an attempt to get his account back, reports The Verge. The lawsuit, filed Friday in the Southern District of Florida, seeks to grant the failed blogger immediate temporary access to his account while he continues to pursue a larger fundraising effort disguised as a legal broadside against tech giants like Twitter and Facebook.

Trump was permanently booted from Twitter in January of 2021, shortly after the storming of U.S. Capitol building by pro-Trump extremists. Facebook, in comparison, has not committed to making Trump’s banishment from its service a permanent one.



“[Twitter] is censoring Plaintiff, a former President of the United States,” claims the lawsuit.

We asked Twitter if it has any comment on the suit, but received no immediate response.

“[Twitter’s] censorship and prior restraint of Plaintiff’s speech violates the First Amendment to the United Sates Constitution and likewise violates Florida’s newly enacted Stop Social Media Censorship Act (‘SSMCA’),” continues the suit.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the SSMCA into law in May, however in June a judge prevented the law from going into effect.

So, yeah. Like with many things Trump, the latest lawsuit against Twitter appears more bluster than substance.
