California Republican Representative Devin Nunes filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter and several accounts for shadow banning Tweets and defamation.
The lawsuit also claims the company did not address complaints about the way the social media platform addressed his account including letting users smear him.
Nunes is also seeking $350,000 in punitive damages.
Twitter did not comment on the lawsuit.
The Nunes lawsuit targets Republican strategist Liz Mair and two parody accounts @DevinNunesMom and @DevinCow, however, the former account is no longer active.
The lawsuit, filed in Virginia, includes YouTube videos and Tweets by Mair.
This is the weirdest fucking thing I've read in a long time, and for the record, I've dumped a lot of Devin Nunes-related oppo. https://t.co/xvG6wztIJ6
