Judge rules US President Trump can't block Twitter users

Thu, May 24, 2018, 08:01 AM
A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that US President Donald Trump cannot block people from his Twitter account in response to their political views because it violates their right to free speech. US District Federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald said in her judgement that the blocking of the individual plaintiffs has the discrete impact of preventing them from interacting directly with the President’s tweets thereby restricting a real albeit narrow, slice of speech. She further said that blocking leads to violation of the first amendment of the Constitution.
