Citing Free Speech, Dissenters Sue Trump for Blocking Them on Twitter

Julia Conley, staff writer

Donald Trump's personal Twitter account is the subject of a lawsuit filed on Tuesday by several users of the platform, including seven people whose accounts were blocked by the president after expressing their views in response to his posts.

The lawsuit argues (pdf) that by blocking users from viewing and replying to the account's tweets, Mr. Trump and members of his communications team are violating the users' First Amendment rights.

I think for those seven people and probably hundreds like them it is a real problem.

No, apparently not.
Trump couldn't have planned this better himself. News cycles taken up by morons.
