Justice Thomas: Sooner or later, courts will rule on Twitter
Justice Clarence Thomas's note was a warning for Congress and the courts. Is Twitter public, or is it private? And what about Facebook and all the other platforms? Social media is something new. Old laws written to deal with newspapers, radio, and television do not fully cover the issues raised by today's social media. New rules will come when lawmakers and judges can no longer avoid the problem, as they did in the Donald Trump Twitter case.
