Can Donald Trump and Tom Reed Block Their Constituents On Social Media?

Can Tom Reed Legally Block His Constituents On Facebook?

 

My Congressman, Tom Reed, has two Facebook accounts. The first is his “Politician” Facebook page.  The second is his official government Facebook page.  Tom Reed (or an assistant) blocked me from posting on his “Politician” page well over a year ago and all my comments on that page have been deleted.  I am not sure exactly why he blocked me.  It might be because I have posted a comment or two that he didn’t like about the Iran nuclear deal.  I imagine he didn’t appreciate my column in the Ithaca Journal last year that criticized his bashing of the deal.

An Open Letter to Twitter

 
You are doing a disservice to every democracy that requires an informed public to run efficiently.  If Ted Cruz, for example, were to drunkenly tweet, "Obama  is an Islamic Kenyan-born monkey who is destroying the country", don't you think the American public should know about it?   Do you think the American public should be denied that information if Cruz immediately regrets the tweet and deletes it?
