Skip to comments.Twitter gives judge 'middle finger,' finds out that was wrong answer

It was tech giant Twitter that let the phrase "Die Trump" trend overseas.
It was Twitter from which Disney walked away because of its "nastiness extraordinary."
It is Twitter that has been accused countless times of shadowbanning or otherwise suppressing the speech of conservatives.
But things may be changing as a result of a judge's decision to allow a $250 million lawsuit brought by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., against Twitter to go forward.
The Federalist reported the case soon could be a "nightmare" for the company.
Judge John Marshall, who was assigned the case in Virginia, is considering a number of routine motions, such as Twitter's claim that the case should be in court in California instead.
"At one point, he asked Twitter to provide to him under seal information on the users managing the anonymous accounts and their locations, the number of Twitter users in Virginia, and the amount of revenue earned by the company in the state," the Federalist reported.
"Rather than comply with the court order, Twitter gave the judge the middle finger and refused to provide the information demanded by the court. The judge responded by allowing the trial against Twitter to proceed in Virginia, a move that could wreak havoc not just on Twitter's bottom line going forward, but also its entire business model."

I hope before this is over Nunes ownes twitter.
I haven’t been on WND in a long time, but that article was good news.
I hope before this is over Nunes owns twitter.
I am so proud to say I know Judge Marshal. He is highly intelligent, unbiased and takes a no-nonsense approach. This could be really good!
I hope before it’s over all of these “social media” scum are viewed as publishers! I’m hoping against hope that this is a crumbling brick in their safe harbor!
I woild not cry if sh1tter ceased operation.
Thanks Faith Presses On. Twitter shareholders should get together and sue the Twitter board for violation of its fiduciary responsibility.
And how would people like me see and hear what the President thinks and says on a regular basis?
I hope he wins, keeps a goodly amount for himself and donates the rest to conservative organizations.
I lost count how many times I got banned from Twitter and then created a new account with a new email only to get banned again for stuff as harmless as asking Rob Reiner for evidence that Trump committed a crime. That website is a utter joke, just another leftist propaganda network. If you look at Rob Reiners Twitter now, nobody confronts him about what he posts. Why? Because they’re all banned, censored......
Well he could post on FreeRepublic. :)
let us hope that Twitter is totally, and completely destroyed by this.
How do you know he doesn’t?
Hed have a posting web site. Hed have emails. Are you so myopic that you cant figure out all the multiple ways online one can stay connected to others?
Petty cash for the tech monopolies. Their legal fees will probably top $10 million on the case, and they won't even notice.
