Trump Blocked Me on Twitter and Itís Costing Me My Career
Fortune ^ | 7/14/17 | Rebecca Buckwalter-Poza

Most of my writing is about the Trump administration. In fact, my mandate from Pacific Standard is “Trump and the law.” On Twitter, the bulk of my recent follower growth and new relationships with others in the politico-legal sphere have come out of responding quickly when the president tweets and engaging the threads of conversation that flow from those tweets.

So when President Donald Trump blocked me in June, apparently for suggesting that Russia influenced the outcome of the 2016 election, he harmed me professionally. Even though I knew @realDonaldTrump was important to my career, it still took me at least a few days to recognize how being blocked by the president on Twitter would affect me as a public intellectual.

Not fair! The president OWES her a career! In fact, he should just write her articles FOR HER!

Well, if you are willingly and knowingly peddling false accusations concerning Russia and Trump, you've mislabeled yourself right there.

A correct label would be an accomplice of the DNC Proganda machine (A.K.A MSM).

So she trashes the President and somehow blames him for not letting her ride his coat tails? She MUST live in DC, because its the same attitude displayed by dems, RINOs, and nevertrumper idiots here.

She was the Deputy National Press Secretary of the Democratic National Committee during the 2008 election. Previously, Rebecca served as Director of Special Projects at Progressive Accountability, a project of the Center for American Progress and Media Matters, and in the Office of James Carville. She has contributed to progressive political campaigns in the United States, South America, Europe, and Africa.
She is also a millenial, snowflake whiner.

if you describe yourself as a “public intellectual” you most certainly are not.

While the people you block won't have your tweets show up in their timelines, they can still read your public tweets ...

Blocked people simply have to sign in as another user (it's easy to create multiple IDs on Twitter) and go to your profile page, where they can easily see your public timeline of tweets. Source

Dear Rebecca, You have the right to speak freely.

You do not have the right to force people to listen to you.

She doesn’t need a Twitter account to read his tweets.

She just wants one so she can make nasty comments on his feed.
