I know there's a thread for all the stupid SJW shit but this I felt needed a bit more attention:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/11/twitter-lawsuit-donald-trump-blocking-knight-institute

"A group of Twitter users has sued Donald Trump and two White House communication aides for violating their constitutional rights by blocking them from Trump’s personal Twitter account after they criticized the president.

The suit, which was was filed in federal court in New York on Tuesday, argues that Trump’s Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, constitutes a “public forum for speech by, to, and about the President”. The plaintiffs are seeking an injunction requiring Trump to unblock their accounts and cease blocking others on the basis of their opinions.

Since Twitter users who have been blocked cannot read or respond to Trump’s tweets, the suit argues, blocking users for their political beliefs “imposes a viewpoint-based restriction on ... participation in a public forum” and violates the first amendment."

I could understand maybe if he was blocking them from the @POTUS account but even then...it's Twitter. Just make another account if following Trump is SO important. Talk about a fucking First World problem. :rofl

Not sure that's the bigger issue, but honestly it seems to be a mix of people who support him, and people who want to be angry.
I don't think I follow him but he's the sort of person I might follow for the dumb shit he comes out with, just to sort of keep abreast of gossipy news stuff.
Well...........Ive got a Twitter account...........with a profile pic of a nice black guy.........I rarely go on and its only for shitposting and trolling sjws and the like...........which confuses them because Im subscribed to a lot of the 'right' people and Im.......um.......a black guy........so they shouldn't oppress me :yep

Its a bit useless to follow the massive accounts like Trump though,IMHO..........its not like he reads the replies............
