    Rittenhouse’s lawyer previously planned to sue Twitter—vowing to take CEO Jack Dorsey’s ‘a** down’ after his account was blocked for ‘glorying violence.’

    On Sept. 2, Wood said he was unlawfully locked out of his Twitter account for nine hours after he started tweeting about raising funds for Rittenhouse’s legal defense.

    The attorney says he was falsely accused by Twitter of ‘glorifying violence’.

    Twitter admitted after several hours that his account was mistakenly disabled.

    ‘I was arrested today & confined in Twitter jail falsely accused of glorifying violence. I was exonerated this evening by a finding of ‘incorrectly actioned.’ I am free tonight,’ Wood tweeted after his account was restored.
