Apart from the man himself, maybe no-one has defined President Trump's political person more than Twitter.
It was through the @ realDonaldTrump account on the social platform as Mr. Trump kicked off who once seemed like a long shot presidential and mobilized his election base.
Now that he is in the White House, he uses Twitter to announce politics, conduct diplomacy and order his subordinates in front of an audience that has grown to 52 million followers.
But on Wednesday, one of Mr Trumps Twitter's habits ̵
In his judgment, federal court judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote about seven plaintiffs who sued Mr. Trump and several of his assistants after being blocked by Mr Trumps Twitter account that "the speech they are trying to engage in is The verdict directed by the first amendment. "Judge Buchwald added that Mr Trump and Dan Scavino, the White House Social Media Director," exercise state control over certain aspects of the @ realDonaldTrump account. "
The complainants who joined the costume of Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, had claimed that Mr. Trumps Twitter Feed was an official government account and what prevents users from following it was a violation of their first change rights.
In his judgment, Judge Buchwald, who was appointed to the Federal Reserve in 1999 by President Bill Clinton, agreed.
"The view-based exclusion of the individual plaintiffs from the designated public forum is forbidden by the first amendment and can not be justified by the president's personal first-change interests," she wrote.
Jameel Jaffer, Knight's First Amendment Institutes Executive Director and lawyers for the plaintiffs said it was clear what Mr. Trump should do in the light of the ruling.
"The position of Trump administration is that the president has the right to block people and that the court is unable to order him to do anything else," said Jaffer. Even though the referee had not ordered it, he said: "The right thing for the president and his social media director to do would be to log in to the president's account and block all who have been blocked on the basis of point of view."
There was no immediate sign that would happen.
"We respect the court's decision and consider the next step," said a spokesman for the Justice Department, representing Mr Trump in the case. 19659013]
