The Supreme Court has decided not to consider a lawsuit that seven Twitter users filed against Donald Trump when he was president. Trump's Justice Department had asked the court to dismiss the case.
The social media customers successfully argued, in lower courts, that their First Amendment rights were violated when Trump blocked them from his personal @realdonaldtrump account.
With Trump no longer in office, the Justice Department reportedly said the case was moot or no longer relevant.
As it stands, the case decisions raise an apparent conflict: How can Twitter users have a First Amendment right to not be blocked from Donald Trump's Twitter account; yet Trump reportedly has no recourse for being banned from the platform entirely?
