Whether or not Trump will accept this ruling and move to start unblocking users remains to be seen, or if he will challenge this ruling, but if anything it does set an interesting precedent.
It took more than 280 characters, but a federal judge in Manhattan ruled Wednesday that President Trump and his aides can not block critics from seeing his Twitter account simply because they had posted caustic replies to his tweets in the past.
Neither the White House nor Twitter (Twitter was not named in the lawsuit) has commented on the case, as of this writing.
But being able to comment on a tweet requires following the president - and blocking someone means he or she can not jump in with their thoughts.
The lawsuit contended that because Trump uses Twitter for a variety of policy announcements, the account is "a designated public forum" that can not exclude people due to their political views.
Today, however, a Federal judge ruled that blocking anyone from accessing the president's Twitter feed is a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
She was blocked a year ago after tweeting to Mr. Trump: "To be fair you didn't win the WH: Russia won it for you".
Dan Ozzi is an author and music journalist who was blocked by Trump in 2014, after he joked that it would be amusing to use his face as a toilet.
Judge Buchwald said: "While we must recognise, and are sensitive to, the president's personal First Amendment rights, he can not exercise those rights in a way that infringes the corresponding First Amendment rights of those who have criticised him".
Mr Trump's "exclusion" of the people he blocked on Twitter amounts to a breach of their rights to free speech, the Politico reported.
As a result of the President's blocking of the Individual Plaintiffs from @realDonaldTrump, the Individual Plaintiffs can not view the President's tweets; directly reply to these tweets; or use the @realDonaldTrump webpage to view the comment threads associated with the President's tweets while they are logged in to their verified accounts. Twitter lets its users mute one another. But, as President, Trump frequently uses it to make official announcements.
"A declaratory judgment should be sufficient, as no government official - including the President - is above the law, and all government officials are presumed to follow the law as has been declared", Buchwald wrote.
Anyone, regardless of whether they have a Twitter account, can generally view @realDonaldTrump tweets. As a result, blocking these users from replying to and retweeting Trump tweets violated the First Amendment. However, she refrained from ordering Scavino or Trump to do so.
Earlier this month, the Knight institute announced it has filed a similar lawsuit over a Facebook user who was temporarily blocked from the page of a public official in Virginia.
