Judge: Trump can't block Twitter users over political beliefs

Trump can't block Twitter users over political beliefs
A federal judge in New York decided Wednesday that President Donald Trump can't block people who disagree with him from his @realDonaldTrump Twitter account.

Naomi Reice Buchwald, a U.S. District Court Judge for the Southern District of New York, wrote in a 75-page decision that Trump -- and other public officials -- cannot block people from their Twitter accounts "in response to the political views that person has expressed"

The seven plaintiffs believed "that his or her personal First Amendment rights have been and will continue to be encumbered, and the ability to communicate has been and will be limited because of each individual plaintiff's personal ownership of a Twitter account that was blocked" by Trump, Buchwald wrote.
