The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

NEW YORK — First Amend­ment ad­vo­cates are su­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, say­ing some of his crit­ics have been un­con­sti­tu­tion­ally blocked from fol­low­ing him on Twit­ter.

The law­suit was filed Tues­day in Man­hat­tan fed­eral court by the Knight First Amend­ment In­sti­tute at Columbia Univer­sity.

The law­suit says Twit­ter has be­come an im­por­tant pub­lic fo­rum for the pres­i­dent and he fre­quently makes pub­lic an­nounce­ments on his @re­aldon­aldtrump ac­count.

The law­suit asked a judge to stop Trump and his me­dia team from block­ing crit­ics from fol­low­ing his per­sonal ac­count.
