Trump Sues for Free Speech...
Supreme Court case Norwood v. Harrison:
The government "may not induce, encourage, or promote private persons
to accomplish what it is constitutionally forbidden to accomplish."

Jack Dorsey, the Censor King, and State's Leftist Henchman and
Apologist proves that... Once you go Censor, you NEVER go back...

Twitter saw a surge in government demands worldwide in 2020 to take
down content posted by journalists and news outlets, according to data
released by the social media platform. In its transparency report
published on Wednesday, Twitter said verified accounts of 199
journalists and news outlets on its platform faced 361 legal demands
from governments to remove content in the second half of 2020, up 26%
from the first half of the year. Twitter ultimately removed five
tweets from journalists and news publishers, the report said. India
submitted most of the removal requests, followed by Turkey, Pakistan
and Russia. India topped the list for information requests by
governments in the second half of 2020, overtaking the United States
for the first time, the report said.

The company said globally it received over 14,500 requests for
information from July 1 to Dec. 31, and it produced some or all of the
information in response to 30% of the requests. Such requests can
include governments or other entities asking for the identities of
people tweeting under pseudonyms. Twitter also received more than
38,500 legal demands to take down various content, down 9% from the
first half of 2020, It complied with 29% of the demands. In the
updated transparency report, Twitter said the number of impressions,
or views of a tweet, that violated Twitter's rules accounted for less
than 0.1% of the total global views in the second half of 2020, the
first time the platform has released such data.
