The Free Speech and Election Integrity Network has asked the Supreme Court for an emergency order to block the Trump administration from enforcing its new limit on social media requests. The group claims that the White House’s new rules breach citizens’ First Amendment rights and threaten their ability to seek or receive information from the government. The network supports a lawsuit originally filed by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. The institute claims that by restricting social media users’ ability to view multiple tweets at once, which is something known as the “five thread limitation,” the White House is effectively denying them to be adequately informed about government policies. This was done in a direct violation of the First Amendment. A federal district court had previously issued a preliminary injunction against the policy, citing First Amendment violations. The Supreme Court, however, could ultimately determine the limitations as valid or not.
