        I made no statements of fact. I only expressed my opinion.

          This is an accusation you need to back up.

            No, I don't. I understand it to be true. i.e. it is my opinion. Words have meaning, sir.

              Understand and opinion are different words. You chose one and not the other.

                  I know it won't happen, but I'd like to imagine that the fat dumb cuck would have to go in himself and un-block everybody one by one.

                      I strongly suspect that if Trump bothers to appeal, this rogue judge will be overturned handily. And it really does open up a can of worms regarding who can be blocked from reading one's tweets. I understand AOC, also a government "mouthpiece" has blocked users as well.
                      You made a statement regarding a concrete fact--something that did not come from your head; it did not originate with your reasoning, your inferring, your values, your imagination, etc. etc. Instead, it's something completely outside of your head; it's a matter of fact that can be either verified or disproven. Hence, you did not make a statement of opinion. This is what we learned in grade school with those opinion-vs-fact tables.

                      Anyway, you are correct that AOC has blocked people, and it's not hard to back up the claim of fact: https://www.washingtonpost.com/techn...=.2ff2609ab73e

                      I imagine that the courts will side with plaintiffs and say that she can't block users either--especially not if its fellow congresspeople conducting policy debate with her via Twitter. Though one or more judges might argue that AOC did not declare that her Tweets are official statements from her office, like how the WH declared Trump's tweets are official administration statements, and thus her account doesn't face the same restraints. We'll see. (That all came from my head; it's my opinion... if it had come from somebody else's head, it would've also been opinion. We can't fact check it; it's pure inference.)
                      For those who prefer to listen rather than read and who ask these questions: What underlying crimes were being investigated when Trump obstructed justice? Why wasn't he indicted? Why did Mueller discuss indicting a sitting president in Volume II but not Volume I?

                            His post was clearly stated as opinion, using words like "I strongly suspect" and "I understand." And again, it's current news that AOC is being sued for blocking users on social media.

                            Make sure you have a legit reason to make a "link" request before making the demand please.

                                If she uses it to discuss politics, policies or correspond with other legislators, then I'd say she's using it for business that's directly pertinent to her office.

                                She has an official congressional account too, but it has a fraction of the followers of her personal account - which is why I suspect she still uses her personal account so much - it has much greater "reach", and on social media, your power is directly proportional to your number of followers.
