Automatic TRANSCRIPT

A champion their policies engage their constituencies end and and disseminate their policy so that's the basic premise of the lawsuit on the facts are fairly straightforward i'm sure your listeners are aware that president trump operates one of the most followed a two accounts on twitter he has i think about thirty five million followers on twitter and he regularly uses that account to uh to announce policy to describe policy to defend policy to engage with other world leaders and to engage even occasionally directly with his constituents about his presidency he has also taken to blocking critics on his twitter account i and the result of a blocking a it is really twofold it first prevents at twitter users from easily reading the president's tweets but perhaps more importantly it prevents twitter users from engaging with the president's tweets in the very lively common thread that surround each of his tweets and he has blocked a number of of critics from those threads and from seeing his tweets and we represent seven of them each of whom was blocked after posting a critical comment in the president's common threads arguing that uh the blocking is viewpoint discriminatory and for that reason of violates the first amendment thank you very much for.
