Ars Technica: Politicians’ social media pages can be 1st Amendment forums, judge says

Ars Technica: Politicians’ social media pages can be 1st Amendment forums, judge says. “To be sure, it’s a digital-age-based constitutional theory about social media rights in a day and age when politicians, from the president on down, are using their private accounts to discuss public affairs. Now there’s some legal precedent on the matter. It comes from a federal judge in Virginia who said that a local politician had violated the First Amendment rights of a constituent because the politician briefly banned the constituent from the politician’s personal Facebook account.”
