New information released concerning Special Counsel Jack Smith’s search warrant for information pertaining to former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, shows that Smith and President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice demanded information on any social media users who retweeted and liked Trump’s posts or mentioned Trump’s account on X, formerly Twitter.
Chuck Callesto, a social media strategist, shared what he described as a “bombshell report” concerning the Justice Department’s targeting of Trump supporters on social media.
“Department of Justice TARGETED THOSE WHO SUPPORTED TRUMP on Twitter – Ordered Review of Trump’s Twitter Activity, Including Accounts That Liked, Followed, or Retweeted His Posts,” he wrote.

Callesto explained that lawyers from the Department of Justice have revealed additional details pertaining to the search warrant that targeted the former president’s Twitter account.
Callesto added, “These documents show that prosecutors amassed an extensive array of data concerning the ex-President’s online interactions, encompassing details of every account that liked, followed, or retweeted his posts.”
A new court filing for the Justice Department’s investigation into Trump’s Twitter account was revealed Monday, including information about a search warrant of Twitter’s records. According to The New York Post, while eight of the 14 pages pertaining to Smith’s search warrant are entirely redacted, the remaining pages show that the special counsel demanded information concerning almost every aspect of Trump’s Twitter account.
Smith demanded that Twitter provide “all advertising information, including advertising IDs, ad activity, and ad topic preferences,” the former president’s privacy and personal account settings, all IP addresses associated with Trump’s account, records of all of Trump’s communications with Twitter support, and all messages sent and received by Trump’s Twitter account between October of 2020 and January of 2021.
The special counsel also demanded information concerning Twitter users who interacted with Trump’s official account prior to the Jan. 6 protest.
The warrant stated that Twitter was required to provide “All information from the ‘Connect’ or ‘Notifications’ tab for the account, including all lists of Twitter users who have favorited or retweeted tweets posted by the account, as well as all tweets that include the username associated with the account (i.e. ‘mentions’ or ‘replies’).”
