    I am confused. Wasn’t the court rule that public officials are not allowed to block users on a social media platform?

    Why would AOC would block users then?

      Because the “rules” don’t apply to her!

      Because it's a recent ruling.

      There's also probably some interesting distinction of blocking due to disagreement vs blocking due to threats, which are undoubtedly some of her blocks.

      Then again, this is all conservative virtue signaling, they don't care about the laws they just want to scream WHAT ABOUT WHAT ABOUT WHAT ABOUT every time they lose.

      lol reminds me of the time liberals crowdfunded Stormy Daniels' defense fund, only to have a judge order her to pay money back to Trump later on.

    Trump blocked users earlier as well. AOC needs to do what Trump does, which is not using twitter as a 2 way dialog where you actually have to read and respond to people. Instead twitter is the anus of Trumps thoughts where information is one unidirectional.

    Then she doesn’t have to read all the hellish trolling and death threats.

      AOC blocks people simply for disagreeing with her, that is the problem

      There’s a difference between being hardcore trolled and people not disagreeing with you. Not interested in what you think her case may be. Either way, blocking people on social media shouldn’t be allowed for public officials.

      It's reasonable that Trump and AOC should be held to the same standard.

      I don't think disallowing politicians from blocking people is a good precedent, technology-law-wise — it's not like Twitter does anything that prevents one from making alternate accounts, so an individual *person* isn't blocked from communicating with their elected official, just that particular screen name.

      Feels like the sort of thing that will have unintended consequences many years down the line.

      If you’re using twitter as your “town square”, you can’t block people. Sorry.

      The problem is nobody should use twitter as their town square. Not even Trump. A town square implies you actually have a two way discussion.

    I think AOC is trolling with everyone. If she has to unblock people, so does Trump and we all know Trump has a much thinner skin.

  • I support Democratic Party, but I do think all congress and senate members do not have the right to block people on twitter.

    She fell victim to one of the classic blunders of Twitter: NEVER READ THE REPLIES.
