A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit by Donald Trump seeking to lift his ban from Twitter on Friday. The social media giant had banned Trump in January 2021, citing the risk of the incitement of further violence on the heels of the Capitol riot by a mob of his supporters.
Elon Musk denied Devin Nunes claim that Donald Trump encouraged him to buy Twitter.
Trump said "You'll never see me again" if he lost to Biden! He lied about that!

Before the ban, Trump was an avid Twitter user, tweeting an average of more than 30 posts per day toward the end of his singular term in office. At the time of the ban, Trump had nearly 90 million followers on Twitter. In July, Trump also filed lawsuits against the CEOs of Facebook, Google, and Twitter over similar censorship claims. He is eligible to return to Facebook in 2023, when his two-year suspension expires.
