Twitter Users Blocked by Trump File Lawsuit

Feelings: Huh. Well, my first instinct is to say, hahah, no. First Amendment rights don't carry over to the internets, because internets is not actually public property, despite its public nature. In other words, every server, every site, every webpage is owned by a private citizen of somewhere. The only things that could potentially qualify as public are government owned sites, and those are not public blog-o-spheres.

But...since apparently North Carolina has ruled that social media constitutes as public property, well...I guess the times, they are a-changing.

We'll see how this turns out. I'm still not convinced they can win this case.
