DC: A federal judge in New York ruled Wednesday that President Donald Trump cannot lawfully block critics from his personal @realDonaldTrump Twitter account.
U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald explained Trump’s Twitter account is properly thought of as a “public forum” from which users may not be excluded on the basis of their views.
“We hold that portions of the @realDonaldTrump account — the ‘interactive space’ where Twitter users may directly engage with the content of the President’s tweets — are properly analyzed under the ‘public forum’ doctrines set forth by the Supreme Court, that such space is a designated public forum, and that the blocking of the plaintiffs based on their political speech constitutes viewpoint discrimination that violates the First Amendment,” the decision reads. more
