President Trump sued for blocking people on Twitter
President Donald Trump has been party to an eye-watering 4,000 lawsuits over the last 30 years, US media say. Now the mogul turned commander-in-chief has attracted one more, after seven people sued him for blocking them on Twitter. The seven Twitter users involved claim their accounts were blocked by the president, or his aides, after they replied to his tweets with mocking or critical comments. People on Twitter are unable to see or respond to tweets from accounts that block them. The legal complaint argues that by blocking these individuals, Mr Trump has barred them from joining the online conversation.
