A white nationalist is taking Twitter to court for banning his account with the social networking service.

The case comes at the same time when social networks are trying to stop hateful and abusive content without appearing to block unpopular opinions.

Jared Taylor launched the case Tuesday in California, at a state court in San Francisco. The Associated Press (AP) described it as the latest legal action by right-wing groups and people banned from social media websites.
