A very special post
This one is for all the legal analysts! Especially Akiva Cohen, America’s Finest Legal Scholar (TM)
Back in December, Akiva - a “commercial litigator” spent the best part of two days regaling his 26,000 followers by explaining just how stupid Berenson v Twitter was, how it couldn’t possibly survive, how it was an embarrassment to the entire legal profession, etc etc ad infinitum.
I am not exaggerating. The thread must have been 200 tweets long and was filled with snark like this:
Now, Akiva actually proved useful - his analysis helped us improve our reply brief. But, truly, what an asshole.
Please tell Akiva I said hi, because I can’t. I await his updated analysis.
But Akiva was far from alone. A popular legal blog called Above the Law referred to the claim as a “LOLsuit.”
Someone named Liz Dye wrote that bit of genius. Tell her I said hi too.
On a more serious note: So far the blogs AND the supposedly serious media outlets have simply ignored the decision, although the discovery may have a monumental impact on our understanding of the way Twitter colluded with the White House and public health authorities to suppress dissent on Covid.
But I guess given their own roles in pushing the approved narrative, they’d rather not know.
