WASHINGTON: A Republican congressman is suing Twitter claiming the online platform discriminates against conservatives by hiding their messages, and for allowing "abusive, hateful and defamatory" content about the lawmaker.

The complaint was filed by Representative Devin Nunes, an ally of President Donald Trump, in a Virginia state court, and released online by Fox News. It seeks $250 million in damages.

Nunes alleges that Twitter "shadow bans" conservatives, purportedly making their messages less visible, and failed to crackdown on parody accounts such as "Devin Nunes´ Mom" and "Devin Nunes´ cow" which accused him of obstructing investigations into the president.
