The court recognizes that there's no right to speak to the President in a way that the President is obliged to read; the President remains free, for instance, to use Twitter's "mute" function, which would keep him from seeing the user's replies when he reviews his own feed.
Judge Buchwald said that the answer to both the questions was no.
The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University filed the lawsuit in July 2017. Likewise, consider a related issue under another First Amendment provision, the Establishment Clause-even Supreme Court justices who believe that the government may not endorse religion think that it's fine for government officials to express religious views in their speeches.
It is unclear if Trump would unblock those he had blocked and the judge did not explicitly rule on that.
Hawaii volcano belches new ash plume as geothermal wells secured
On Monday, lava entered and then stalled on the property of a geothermal plant near one of Kilauea's new volcanic vents. The latest explosive eruption yesterday at 9.59pm local time sent plumes of smoke nearly 9,000 feet into the air.

Cohen was blocked by Trump last summer after he posted a image of the president with the words "Corrupt Incompetent Authoritarian". The feature prevents selected accounts from appearing in a user's Twitter mentions - effectively blocking them from Trump's view.

Trump said he didn't want to "totally commit" himself on whether North Korea should denuclearize all at once or in phases. The group includes an Associated Press Television crew.
U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald cited First Amendment principles in holding that the social media platform offered a forum in which people could not only consume information and opinion from public figures but offer feedback to elected officials - just as they have the right to do in newsprint or in person in public spaces.
"I think this decision is correct", Giampietro said.
The judge did, however, state that Trump could mute Twitter users, which remains constitutional as he still has the ability to reply to an account that he has muted.
Buchwald stopped short of accepting the request for an injunction against Trump and his social media aide, Dan Scavino, who was also named in the complaint, saying she expected the White House to abide by her "declaratory" ruling.
