Last week, U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled against the Trump Administration in a suit filed by Columbia University over the president’s practice of blocking Twitter users. The university argued that American citizens have the right to be free to express their views to elected officials. Blocking users on a social media website simply because their views run counter to the president’s is undemocratic, the suit argued.

Young, to talk about what local implications there might be as a result of the ruling.  Read: U.S. Judge: Elected officials may not block on social media Read: Censoring constituents online gains popularity
