Doctors sue Twatter

Drs. Malone, Tyson, and McCullough have teamed up and have sued Twitter for breach of contract because Twitter did not follow their own “disinformation” guidelines, which include six warnings, before banning them from their platform. The doctors will all move for an award of attorneys’ fees under the California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 1021.5 for enforcement of an important right affecting the public interest. This means that if the doctors are successful, Twitter may be ordered to pay all of their attorneys’ fees for the lawsuit.

Doesn’t there have to be a payment, no matter how token, to constitute a valid contract? I’ve been keeping a half an eye on the Berenson case which has now been settled, but the terms seem very vague. He has his account back anyway.
