HOW CAN THE US GOVERNMENT FORCE A PUBLIC CITIZEN FROM IGNORING PERSONS IN A PRIVATE BUSINESS?

Trump Can't Block Critics on Twitter. What This Means For You


Quote:While the case has drawn attention for its ties to the Tweeter-in-chief, legal scholars say it has far-reaching implications, protecting all Americans' rights to communicate with elected leaders and government entities online.

“This is a really important contribution,” says Danielle Citron, a law professor at the University of Maryland and author of the book Hate Crimes in Cyberspace.

Judge Buchwald's decision explains how the case hinges on two crucial questions: Whether a public official can block people on Twitter in response to their political views without violating their First Amendment rights, and whether it matters when the person doing the blocking is the President.

“The answer to both questions is no,” Buchwald wrote. “No government official—including the President—is above the law,” she continued.

The ruling crucially distinguishes between the President’s Twitter account—which, like public parks, is under government control—and private citizens’ accounts. While ordinary Twitter users can block and follow other Twitter users they do or don’t agree with, the judge found that @realdonaldtrump is essentially a space operated by the government for government business, and therefore, cannot curb speech based on people’s viewpoints.

wow, really, no sh*it?

The president should not be on twitter, a breeding ground of Russian trolls that can spam and flood reply sections with their dumb crap, well, he is in good company at least, except in november no one is going to be dumb enough to listen to their crap this time around, but given his supporters that's debateable.

The judge is giving twitter the legal right to delete his account and block him from using their service is what it'll amount to if he doesn't comply.

Twitter can ban anyone for any reason. Trump can block anyone for any reason, and so can you. This ruling is absurd.

Oh? Have you read the court's ruling? I doubt it.

Twitter can block and shadow ban - where's the defense of #1A. I thought #1A applies to all Americans.

The first amendment forbids the government from stifling free speech. A person blocking a troll so hey do not derail or otherwise interfere is not a free speech violation.

You or any person is still free to say what they want. The person blocking you doesn't have to put up with it on their profile though.

It amazes me how few people actually understand the rights as they have been afforded.

That ruling could easily be appealed if the account existed prior to Trump running for office.

Indeed the ruling is absurd and shows ignorance on the part of the judge. I can block anyone or delete any post, and so can Trump.

RE: Trump may not block Twitter users over political views: judge
Quote:After months of enjoying the “exchange of ideas” in replies to the president’s tweets, she was blocked in July 2017 for suggesting that Mr. Trump not use the platform to boast about his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. She felt he was profiting from his position.

Getting blocked made her feel muzzled and disenfranchised, she said. She had noticed many others getting barred, those she’d previously conversed with, but she never thought it would happen to her because she said she never made insulting comments. She later noticed that users who had targeted her with violent threats were still commenting on the president’s posts. “This was viewpoint discrimination, an injustice and a violation of my rights,” she said.

The verdict on Wednesday was “incredibly vindicating,” she said. “It shows that it wasn’t just a wacky perspective that I had.”
‘Every tweet — in which we protest Trump’s abuses of his office — is important’

Anne Rice, a 76-year-old author most famous for her series “The Vampire Chronicles,” has long been a vocal critic of the president and was blocked years ago, she said on Wednesday.

While she couldn’t remember the exact tweet that caused her to be barred, “it certainly was not abusive,” she said.

Being blocked has been a nuisance, she said. “I have to look up Trump’s tweets every day to see what the national discussion is about,” she said. She called his proclivity unfair, “considering how widely he has used Twitter for policy.”

With this ruling, she hopes to be unblocked. “Every tweet — in which we protest Trump’s abuses of his office — is important,” she said. “If we can respond to Trump’s own tweets directly, we can reach some of his ‘base.’”
‘What he’s done is create an echo chamber’

William LeGate, a tech entrepreneur, engaged with President Trump’s Twitter posts until he was blocked for suggesting the president had a crush on Hillary Clinton.
