If, as an elected official, you’re choosing to use social media as a governing or legislative tool— including discussion of bills or how you’re voting on certain bills— then, yeah. No locking down accounts. No blocking.\n\n\nThere is no rule that says they have to include everyone in discussion. They should have the free speech ability to block whoever they want. Twitter is not a public space. \n\n\nInsisting a website is public space is pretty dumb.\nIf Twitter allows users to block people, anybody should be able to use that feature, regardless of their affiliation with the general population.\n\n\nI agree 100%. Who is going to legislate the blocks? Are we going to trust the government to review each instance? What a tremendous waste.
