• Free Process Server Consultation for Victims of a Crime in Albany

    A Legal battle between Twitter and man named Mr. Wilson is coming to a close after the magistrate recommended Wilson drop the complaint. The issue centers around first amendment rights that Wilson believes he had restricted by the social media company. In Wilson’s opinion, he took to Twitter to have conversations and express his heterosexuality and Christianity. However, once his account was suspended for allegedly hateful conduct, Wilson was unable to create new accounts. This spurred him to prepare a lawsuit for more than $100,000,000.00.

    The judge has ruled that Twitter is not a “state actor”. Therefore, Twitter does not act on behalf of the United States government. Furthermore, Twitter does not have to enable total freedom of speech on its private platform. Here is the quote regarding First Amendment application to this case and situation:

    While Twitter no doubt provides a valuable public forum, one in which millions of users, including the President of the United States, participate in wide-ranging public discourse, this alone is insufficient to establish that Twitter is a state actor. Although the ubiquity of the internet, and the unprecedented scale at which social media companies such as Twitter operate, has resulted in a significant portion of public debate taking place on forums controlled by private actors, the nature of the state-action doctrine remains the same….

    That private social media companies now host platforms which imitate the functions of public forums—in many respects more effectively than the traditional public forums of government-owned sidewalks, streets, and public parks—does not mean that the entities are state-actors for the purposes of the First Amendment notwithstanding that it has created a forum for hosting speech, Twitter is a private entity and is not subject to the state-action doctrine.
