SOCIAL MEDIA/SUPREME COURT/TWITTER: “The decision by social media giants Twitter and Facebook to ban former President Donald Trump from their platforms appears to have drawn the ire of one of America’s most prominent jurists: Justice Clarence Thomas…

Thomas’ opinion was prompted by the high court’s decision not to review an appeals court ruling that concluded Trump violated the First Amendment by blocking some Twitter users he disagreed with from replying to his posts. Thomas said the appeals court’s decision finding Trump’s account to be a public forum had some merit, but the platform’s move to shut down Trump altogether undermined that conclusion.”
