Twitter Locks Account of Lawyer for Teenage Kenosha Shooter
The attorney has vowed to take revenge.
Twitter and other social media platforms have been under the microscope as of late, as political beliefs appear to be playing a larger and larger role in the way that they dole out disciplinary action.
There are concerns that the leadership of these enormously influential companies could be allowing their own personal biases effect the way in which their platforms operate. This is especially worrisome here in the United States, where the right to free speech is intrinsic to our existence. We are nothing if we are not free to speak our minds, and by diverting a great deal of the American narrative to social media, we’ve allowed for a handful of companies to shape the entire discourse.
Now, in what could be a frightening overreach, Twitter temporarily deactivated the account of a lawyer in one of the nation’s most high profile cases.
The high-profile attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with fatally shooting two people in Kenosha, said he was locked out of his Twitter account Tuesday after posting about raising money for Rittenhouse’s legal defense.
L. Lin Wood argued the action against his account is the latest example of Twitter censorship of conservative voices and he intends to file a lawsuit against the social media giant and its CEO Jack Dorsey.
Wood was furious.
“I’m going to take Jack Dorsey’s ass down,” Wood told Fox News. “He has been abusing the First Amendment of this country for his own agenda.”
So, what was his offense?
Wood was blocked from tweeting for several hours on Tuesday for violating Twitter rules. Wood said he’s been careful to abide by Twitter’s terms of service. But he got a notice that his account was locked for “glorifying violence.”
Twitter would later admit that they made a “mistake”, restoring Wood’s account.
