Via TTN:

A Florida federal judge says that Trump’s effort to have his Twitter account restored must be heard in California.

The Hill reports:

Miami-based U.S. District Judge Robert Scola Jr. ruled that Trump agreed to be bound by Twitter’s terms of service in 2009 when he created his @realdonaldtrump handle while he was a private citizen. Those terms include a so-called “forum selection clause” requiring that suits against the San Francisco-based company be brought to federal court in northern California.

Scola, an Obama appointee, rejected Trump’s claim that his position as a sitting president should exempt him from that requirement.

“Trump’s former status as the President of the United States does not preclude the application of the forum selection clause,” Scola wrote in a 13-page ruling.

Scola’s move to transfer the case to California comes after another Florida-based judge transferred a Trump lawsuit against YouTube to federal court in California. A Trump suit against Facebook, however, is currently pending in the Sunshine State.

Trump’s social media accounts were frozen in the days following the Capitol riot last January. Since then, Trump has launched multiple efforts to have the accounts restored, and recently even announced the creation of a new media platform.

I would write this article’s headline as “Obama judge rules Trump’s lawsuit must be heard in California, not Florida.”

Best way to deal with Twitter is for all loyal Patriots to boycott them! Twitter overnight lost billions when they banned the president of the free World! Show them that the people are behind the best President ever! In God we trust, not Communism

The dems want to do away with any and all free speech, unless you are touting socialism. These ridiculous idiots need to be stopped. 4 years the queen pig of congress Pelosi accomplished nothing but trying to impeach our President Trump. Oh wait I am wrong she was also able to accomplish insider trading for her own gain.
can not build a border wall but she has a wall around her mansion an creepy sniffer joe is building a wall around his home too. . Amazing the double standards these people support. Time to remove them all.
oh yes parents that care about their children are now domestic terrorist. But BLM and ANTIFA are completly
welcome to destroy businesses and cities. Anybody that is a dem have a brain.

Twitter is part of the Terrorist Group that run a coup and took over our Government.

They should be arrested and placed in hold for a Military Court after we can find were the American Military leadership begins
