Fresh off a battle with The New York Times, Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has set his sights on Twitter. O’Keefe is suing the social media giant for defamation, claiming they permanently suspended his account because he operated fake accounts.
O’Keefe contends nothing is more important than a journalist’s reputation and that Twitter deliberately defamed him by their actions.

Stay tuned for more drama. Here’s more with Freiheit.
