Supreme Court rejects judgment against Trump for banning Twitter users

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday overturned a lower court ruling that former President Donald Trump broke the first amendment by preventing multiple Twitter users from following his account. The court dismissed the case as "in dispute" as Trump is now a private citizen. Back in 2019, a federal appeals court said Trump had broken the constitution by blocking users who had sent him critical comments. The court ruled that Trump couldn't stop Americans from following him on Twitter because he was using his account for government affairs. Trump, the appeals court argued, violated the first change by banning users from a public forum – in this case, from his Twitter account.

That reality, Thomas said, could force the government to change the way they regulate companies like Twitter and Facebook. "Today's digital platforms offer opportunities for historically unprecedented amounts of speech, including speech by government actors," wrote Thomas. “What is also unprecedented, however, is the concentrated control over so much language in the hands of a few private parties. We will soon have no choice but to delve into applying our legal teachings to highly concentrated, privately owned information infrastructures such as digital platforms. "He added," If the goal is to ensure that language is not stifled, the dominant digital platforms themselves must inevitably be the greatest concern.
