Isaac said that between late July 2019 and October 14, 2020, he interacted with the FBI and Robert Costello on several occasions. Costello is the lawyer for Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer for President Donald Trump. the NY Post published his article after receiving information from Giuliani, the lawsuit says. Isaac also pointed out that he was unaware that the post contained information on the computer’s hard drive.
Shortly after blocking the URL of the Posts history, twitter altered its pirated material policy. The website has decided to no longer remove pirated content unless it is shared directly by hackers and tag tweets to provide context instead of blocking their URLs from being shared. However, it wasn’t just Twitter that took steps to limit the scope of the story. Facebook also reduced its distribution until it was reviewed by the social network’s fact-checking partners.
In addition to suing Twitter for $ 500 million in punitive damages, Isaac also wants the court to force Twitter to “make a public retraction on all false statements.”
