Lin Wood, one of several attorneys of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who has been charged with murder after shooting dead two protesters in Kenosha, is planning on filing a lawsuit against Twitter after his account got blocked.
According to Wood, his rights were violated as his account got suspended for ‘glorifying violence’ as he spoke in the defense of the teenage shooter to help raise funds for his defense.
As the attorney insisted, he was blocked from using his account for several hours before Twitter finally reinstated his profile.
“I was arrested today & confined in Twitter jail falsely accused of glorifying violence. I was exonerated this evening by a finding of ‘incorrectly actioned.’ I am free tonight,” Wood wrote in his post after the incident.
“Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested on 8/26 & is confined in Illinois jail falsely accused of murder. Kyle will be exonerated when truth is revealed by a finding of ‘incorrectly actioned.’ Kyle will be free soon.”
According to the reports, the attorney is now planning on suing the social media platform for “abusing the First Amendment.”
As Wood vowed in an interview with Fox News, he plans on bringing Twitter CEO “Jack Dorsey’s a** down.”
“I’m going to take Jack Dorsey’s a** down. He has been abusing the First Amendment of this country for his own agenda,” the attorney insisted.
According to Wood, he had been careful not to violate any of the platform’s terms of service knowing that he would likely become a target of censorship.
“I knew they were going to censor me because I’m sending a message of hope. I’m sending a message of truth. And I’m sending a message that Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent,” Wood said.
As the attorney added, he has allegedly been gathering evidence that supposedly proves Twitter is suppressing free speech.
Meanwhile, Twitter admitted their mistake and confirmed that the attorney’s account has been reinstated. “This account was incorrectly actioned. This has been reversed and the account has been reinstated,” a representative said.
