Twitter Slapped With $350K Fine For Contempt

Twitter is $350K lighter in the wallet because of the fact that they didn’t instantly comply with the Special Counsel’s request for access to Donald Trump’s Twitter account:

The US special counsel who is investigating Donald Trump obtained a search warrant for the former president’s Twitter account in January, and the social media platform delayed complying, a court filing on Wednesday showed.

The delay in compliance prompted a federal judge to hold Twitter in contempt and fine it $350,000, the filing showed.

The US special counsel, Jack Smith, has brought two indictments against Trump. The first case surrounds Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents, the second concerns alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and over.

Twitter really is playing with fire here. Angering the Justice Department is a really bad idea, and Elon is likely going to find this out the hard way. Much I like to say that Elon should smarten up before he gets burned. But there’s no chance that he will smarten up. Thus, fans of Elon, all three of them should prepare for impact.
