Trump sues Twitter, Google and Facebook alleging ‘censorship’

Freedom of speech

The class action lawsuit also targets the three companies’ CEOs. Mr Trump was suspended from his social accopremiercity.comunts in January over public safety concerns in the wake of the Capitol riots, led by his supporters.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump called the lawsuit “a very beautiful development for our freedom of speech”. In a news conference from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Mr Trump railed against social media companies and Democrats, who he accused of espousing misinformation.

“We are demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and cancelling that you know so well,” he said. The suit requests a court order to end alleged censorship. Mr Trump added if they could ban a president, “they can do it to anyone”.

Billionaire bitcoin advocate Jack Dorsey is auctioning the very first tweet in history as an NFT

What is an NFT?

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is offering to sell his very first tweet by auctioning it as a special digital asset class known as a non-fungible token.

Dorsey shared a link Friday afternoon to a website called Valuables, which allows selling tweets as NFTs. The billionaire listed his very first tweet “just setting up my twttr” for bids even though it exists on Twitter and is free to view.

As a long-time cryptocurrency advocate, jumping into the NFT craze is not a surprising move by Dorsey.  Crypto boss Justin Sun upped his bid twice, ultimately offering $2 million for Dorsey’s tweet. But the highest bid for the piece of Twitter history is from Sina Estavi, CEO of the Bridge Oracle platform, according to the Valuable’s website.
