Trump's social media lawsuits, if they're somehow allowed to proceed, could end up forcing him to testify under oath about Jan. 6.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 8, 2021
Twitter's TOS (which you agree to when you sign up) literally says "We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to [reasons listed]"https://t.co/WXLjR1rGHm— Phillip M Jackson (@Jolly_Jack) July 8, 2021
Social media companies need not worry about Donald Trump’s lawsuit. He and his legal team have sued us countless of times — and we are still here making his life miserable.— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) July 7, 2021
Trump's Facebook lawsuit is filed in federal court in Florida. Facebook's terms of service requires that "any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against us" be filed in federal court in northern California or San Mateo County state court.— Brad Heath (@bradheath) July 7, 2021
Trump lawyers know they will never need to produce any discovery because the case will be dismissed before an answer is filed. This lawsuit can only be about distraction and fundraising because it is not about the law.— Barb McQuade (@BarbMcQuade) July 7, 2021
Trump has the First Amendment argument backwards. Facebook and Twitter themselves have a First Amendment right to decide what speech their platforms amplify — a right that includes excluding speakers who incite violence, as Trump has done.https://t.co/hl9aw1cmPE— Laurence Tribe (@tribelaw) July 7, 2021
Obviously Trump's lawsuit against Facebook and Twitter for censoring his posts is dumb and frivolous, which you can conclude after reading the entire 44-page complaint or just after checking how many of his Very Serious Lawyers use their AOL email accounts https://t.co/bldN6MyIIv pic.twitter.com/XOqsXsa9vx— Jay Willis (@jaywillis) July 7, 2021
That's two guys with "@aol.com" addresses for their professional email, a 13-lawyer firm that does personal injury work and insurance litigation, with lead counsel whose specialty is insurance claims and criminal defense (Matthew Baldwin), and a Greenwich CT firm whose named guys— Akiva Cohen (@AkivaMCohen) July 7, 2021
One, HAHAHA— Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) July 7, 2021
Three, if it was, DOJ would have to intervene and I’m sure that’s totally what Trump wants.
Four, if Facebook/Twitter were actual state actors, don’t you think the White House Counsel would have told Trump that and advised him how to control them? https://t.co/CaHMln4aT1
Below is an excerpt from Trump's WSJ op-ed, "Why I’m Suing Big Tech."— Jan Wolfe (@JanNWolfe) July 8, 2021
His core claim -— "Big Tech has been illegally deputized as the censorship arm of the U.S. government" — is being panned by legal experts.
Facebook and Google were just recently *sued* by the US government! pic.twitter.com/3RpBuazOXR
Don’t be taken in by the “what if it does” retort.— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) July 7, 2021
The “state action” doctrine is about as firmly embedded a principle of constitutional law as there is. To overturn it would have incredibly broad consequences — many of which the current Supreme Court would be loath to embrace.
.@LevinsonJessica: Fmr. President Trump’s main difficulty here is that Facebook, Twitter and Google, while indisputably powerful, are private companies, not part of the govt. When social media companies act, it is a private action, not govt action. https://t.co/CKJYOB3QJf— MSNBC Daily (@MSNBCDaily) July 8, 2021
Trump claims he is filing a "class-action" lawsuit against social media companies for throwing him off their platforms.— S.V. Dáte (@svdate) July 7, 2021
What, exactly, is the class?
Presidents who lost re-election and then tried to overthrow American democracy to remain in power?
That is a class of one. pic.twitter.com/i5uxvo2sYp
The responsibility of conservative elites for the authoritarian takeover of American conservatism is very great. Their occasional ineffectual demurrals notwithstanding, @WSJopinion and others have rationalized, enabled, and legitimized Trump and Trumpism.https://t.co/iPWBcbqulu— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) July 8, 2021
Just to clarify for the sad mindless trolls cheering on foreign billionaire oligarchs to censor political debate in Australia— Craig Kelly MP (@CraigKellyMP) July 8, 2021
I’m suing Facebook for defamation & misleading or deceptive conduct under 🇦🇺laws before 🇦🇺 courts.
Trump is suing under the 🇺🇸Constitution. https://t.co/ycvo39FxQ4
President Trump is suing Facebook and Twitter! What they did to him and what they have been doing to all of us is flat out unfair! Class Action Lawsuit.— Terrence K. Williams (@w_terrence) July 7, 2021
WE DESERVE JUSTICE!

A slight pet peeve here: Liberals saying "lol private companies can't do censorship" may be correct from a legal standpoint. But politically it's a tone-deaf stance. Trump's lawsuit may be dumb but dismissing corporate power over speech is misguided. https://t.co/xQkTC3wd8Q pic.twitter.com/ML41JzxlO5— Will Oremus (@WillOremus) July 8, 2021
