Twitter has been held in contempt and ordered to pay a $350,000 fine for reportedly delaying the release of information related to the “@realDonaldTrump” account. The development arises from a court document disclosing that Special Counsel Jack Smith had obtained a secret search warrant for former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account in January. The warrant was connected to Trump’s alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 US election. The court found Twitter in contempt after it failed to fully produce the requested information for the “realDonaldTrump” account within the stipulated timeframe, extending beyond the court’s deadline by three days. This penalty was announced in a document filed on Wednesday. Initially, the district court prohibited Twitter from revealing the warrant to anyone. Twitter contested this, asserting that it violated the First Amendment and the Stored Communications Act.

Judge Florence Pan, appointed by President Biden, supported the district court’s decision, asserting that it had acted appropriately by not halting the enforcement of the warrant until the First Amendment claim had been legally resolved. Judge Pan dismissed Twitter’s First Amendment arguments, emphasizing that the nondisclosure order was intended to prevent President Trump from learning about the warrant’s existence. The court document revealed that Twitter had encountered technical difficulties with its website, hindering the government’s initial attempts to serve the warrant and nondisclosure order. After several challenges, the government succeeded in serving Twitter on January 19, 2023. The case’s central issue revolves around whether Special Counsel Smith can substantiate that President Trump did not genuinely believe his assertions that the 2020 US election had been stolen from him. In conclusion, Twitter has been penalized with a $350,000 fine for allegedly delaying the release of information tied to the “@realDonaldTrump” account following the revelation of a secret search warrant obtained by Special Counsel Jack Smith. The court upheld the fine, dismissing Twitter’s First Amendment claims and emphasizing that the nondisclosure order was intended to prevent tipping off President Trump about the warrant. The case centers on whether Smith can prove President Trump’s beliefs regarding the election results.
