Out of curiosity, if him blocking the public from engaging him on Twitter is a violation of the 1st amendment, then how does that translate to Twitter banning someone? Once banned they would no longer be able to engage in public discourse with a government official.
If yes they can still ban you:
Are private entities allowed to serve as gate keepers to public officials? Can Sprint say I'm not allowed to make phone calls to the DNC?
Does an official government entity using social media, turn that space effectively into a public one requiring 1st amendment protections?
Democrats are no different. The political side that is all about liberties and solving injustices and their initial field of presidential candidates is almost all white people. And only 6 of the 25 are women.
tbh it scares me all of the things they talk about wrt the internet in politics & media, feel like they will use Russia or whatever as an excuse to pass some sweeping internet privacy bill that is like the Patriot Act but for the internet and things just suck from then on out. the thought of being held legally responsible for what i say on Twitter is kind of a nightmarish dystopia come to life.
