Judges point out that Trump violates First Amendment by blocking critics

A federal appealing court says Trump can not block critics of his Twitter account, reports NBC News.

The 2nd Court of Appeals of the United States Circuit in Manhattan made the ruling. This resolution issued by a set of 3 judges, was produced by a case presented by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University.

The Institute, which as it is stated on its website, “defends freedom of expression and press in the digital era through strategic litigation, research and public education”, sued on behalf of 7 people blocked by Trump after criticizing his policies.

The appeals court argued that the First Amendment does not allow a public official who uses a social media account for “all kinds of official purposes” to exclude people from an online dialogue that would otherwise be open because they disagree with the official.

Donald Trump has just over 60 million followers on his personal Twitter account, while former President Barack Obama reaches 107 million.
