Lin Wood, a high-profile defamation lawyer who represents 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, said he plans to sue Twitter after the platform temporarily suspended his account.
How we got here: Twitter locked Wood’s account earlier this week, saying he violated the platform’s rules against glorifying violence. His last tweet before the suspension was about a crowdfunding campaign aimed at helping Rittenhouse’s legal defense.
The company later said that Wood’s account has been suspended by mistake. “This account was incorrectly actioned. This has been reversed and the account has been reinstated,” a spokesperson for the company said.
Still, Wood did not appear convinced of Twitter’s explanation. He maintains that he’s been careful to abide by the company’s rules, accused Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey of censorship, and said he would sue the social media platform.
