According to CNN, on July 9, the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Twitter followers of US President Trump pulled the black had made it unconstitutional for them to see their Twitter texts.
According to CBS, the judge wrote in the ruling: For a public official who uses social media accounts for official purposes, the First Amendment does not allow people who disagree with the authorities to be excluded from open online conversations.
The case was brought to court by Columbia Universitys Knight First Amendment Institute, which spoke on behalf of seven people blocked by Trump for publishing negative comments on policy in 2017. Following the courts ruling, the Institute said that the Twitter users they represented had been blocked.
Trump often uses Twitter to announce the appointment and removal of officials and promulgate important decrees. The White House has repeatedly stated that the Presidents Twitter message belongs to the Presidents official statement. Trump has about 61.8 million Twitter followers, and he has accused Twitter of limiting usersattention to him.
Trump will hold a social media summit on November, when conservatives from the United States will attend to discuss how to deal with social media restrictions on conservative voices. At present, the White House has not released the details of the summit, but it is certain that neither Twitter nor Facebook will be represented.
