Donald Trump asks a Florida court to force Twitter to reactivate his account

Former United States President Donald Trump, whose Twitter account was suspended in January after the assault on the Capitol by a group of his followers, has asked a court in the state of Florida to force the company to reactivate the profile.

According to the ex-president, Twitter canceled his account due to political pressure from his rivals. He has now asked that it be temporarily reopened while his lawsuit against the company is settled, which he has asked to restore the profile permanently.

The request was registered on Friday afternoon. In it, the magnate’s lawyers have defended that Twitter “exercises a level of power and control of political discourse (…) immeasurable, without historical precedent, and deeply dangerous for open democratic debate,” according to the Bloomberg agency.

In addition, they have ensured that the company censored Trump during his presidency by cataloging his messages as “dubious information” or indicating that they violated the platform’s rules against incitement to violence.

Twitter decided to suspend the account of the then president of the United States, with more than 88 million followers, after on January 6 a group of his followers attacked the Capitol to try to stop the confirmation of Joe Biden’s electoral victory in The congress. Five people died in the attack.

Donald Trump had used his Twitter profile to repeatedly claim that the election had been rigged, an accusation that has been refuted numerous times and for which he presented no evidence.
