Oliphant on the Constitutionality of Twitter Blocking

Announcing an upcoming guest-post

My friend, co-author, and occasional guest here Benjamin Oliphant will be back soon to give us his perspective on a constitutional challenge to Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson’s blocking of citizens on Twitter. This is a novel case in Canada ― though American citizens have succeeded, for now at least, in a similar one involving Donald Trump’s Twitter feed ― and I am very much looking forward to Mr. Oliphant’s thoughts on it.
