Fascinating! I wonder how far back you can go that someone foresaw an issue like this with social media?

The ACLU of Maine demanded in a letter to Maine Gov. Paul LePage today that he cease his unconstitutional practice of censoring his constituents from accessing and commenting on his official verified Facebook page. As an elected official using his Facebook page as a public platform for engaging with his constituents, he cannot selectively delete and block those whose viewpoints he disagrees with. The First Amendment guarantees that we have the right “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” and that means Gov. LePage too. I am proud to have had a role in this effort on behalf of the ACLU. #FirstAmendment #RightToPetition
