Former President Donald Trump asked a Florida judge to force Twitter to give him access to his account.




Trump's lawyers said the suspension is unfair to Trump, who's been banned for potential to incite violence.




In contrast, the lawyers say Twitter has allowed the Taliban to post freely on the platform.

Lawyers for former President Donald Trump are urging a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to reinstate his account. In a preliminary injunction against Twitter filed Friday in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, his lawyers argued in part that the social media platform has been suspending accounts arbitrarily.The Taliban, for example, has been able to "tweet regularly about their military conquests and victories across Afghanistan" since early August, his lawyers wrote. Twitter "exercises a degree of power and control over political discourse in this country that is immeasurable, historically unprecedented, and profoundly dangerous to open democratic debate," lawyers for Trump wrote.
