The court banned Trump to block critics on Twitter

According to the judges, this is contrary to the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

The Federal court of appeal ruled that US President Donald Trump cannot block critics from his Twitter account because it violates the right to free speech enshrined in the Constitution.

The second Appeals court in Manhattan unanimously ruled that the First Amendment to the US Constitution prohibits Trump from blocking critics in his account, which is a public platform.

On behalf of a panel of three judges, district judge Barrington Parker wrote: “The First Amendment does not allow a public official who uses a social media account for all sorts of official purposes to exclude people from an otherwise open online dialogue because they express views with which that official disagrees.”

Trump uses his Twitter account to promote his agenda and attack critics. He has over 60 million followers.
