A RESEARCH OFFICER for the Iona Institute has filed a case in the High Court against Twitter. 

Dr Angelo Bottone, a philosophy lecturer, confirmed yesterday that he was taking the social media giant to court.

According to the profile on the Iona website, Bottone has written books and articles on multiculturalism, ethics and politics and lectures in UCD and Dublin Business School.

Bottone is a frequent user of Twitter, and regularly writes blog posts on the Iona Institute site. 

Members of Iona Institute, headed by columnist David Quinn, were prominent campaigners on the No side of this year’s Eighth Amendment referendum.

The Catholic group also opposed the passing of the same-sex marriage referendum.

It’s not known at this time the reason why Bottone has filed the suit against the social media company.
