During the time Twitter was solely governed by woke, left-wing elites, a wholesale decision was ultimately made to wage war against free speech and, more specifically, the voices of conservatives. However, the American public became most aware of this ethical malfeasance when the personal and campaign accounts of 45th President Donald J. Trump were banned.
Political strategist Alex Lorusso otherwise known as “ALX” on Twitter, also found himself victimized by the platform’s dictatorial speech policies before newly dubbed CEO Elon Musk acquired the social media platform and began reinstating accounts to restore free speech. Lorusso’s account was reinstated in November, around the same time as the personal accounts of President Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and several others.
Once Lorusso gained access to his account, he made it a goal to lobby Musk to continue his reinstatement spree. In fact, Lorusso eventually managed to work hand-in-hand with Musk to fix the old totalitarian policies of Twitter while simultaneously restoring it with the values of free speech and political neutrality, which it had abandoned so many years ago. Although President Trump had received his personal account back, Lorusso quickly discovered he had not yet received his campaign account, “Team Trump,” back.
In a statement obtained exclusively by RSBN, Lorusso said:
“Being a previously suspended user myself, I have been using my platform to advocate for the reinstatement of other wrongly-banned accounts. The fact that the Trump campaign account was suspended, was brought to my attention by @DillonFillionIA, so I Tweeted asking for the account to be reinstated since Trump was brought back and he is officially a candidate for office.”
The tweet Lorusso was referring to:
Shortly after Lorusso requested the reinstatement of the Team Trump account, Twitter unlocked the account only one day after.
