Huh? Bill Clinton Nominated Judge Rules Donald Trump Cannot Ban Liberal Trolls from his Personal Twitter Account
Judge Naomi Buchwald ruled on Wednesday that Donald Trump cannot ban liberal trolls from his Twitter account.
Buchwald was nominated by Bill Clinton.
So if Donald Trump cannot ban liberal trolls how does Twitter get away with banning conservative content?
President Donald Trump cannot block users on his Twitter feed, a federal judge in New York City ruled Wednesday.
Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald said in her ruling that Trump is violating the U.S. Constitution by preventing certain Americans from viewing his tweets on @realDonaldTrump.
The social media platform, Buchwald said, is a “designated public forum” from which Trump cannot exclude individual plaintiffs.
The judge’s ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed last July by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, as well as seven other plaintiffs who said they had been blocked on Twitter by Trump.
James O’Keefe responded to today’s ruling.
If POTUS can't block users on Twitter per First Amendment violation, can Twitter not shadowban tweets for political content on same basis? We exposed video of Twitter engineers explaining how they specifically target @realdonaldtrump supporters' tweets, and classify them as bots. pic.twitter.com/zZfpMak89v
