Trump had access to post on the @POTUS account, but for whatever reason, refused to use it. He could have kept things separate.
I don't think he could bring himself to use the same account President Obama had used.

Is it spelled emir of amir, or are they interchangeable?
I've seen it both way but I'm pretty sure the most proper is 'emir'.
TY. I was getting mixed results.

Previous rulers of Qatar appear to have been titled "Emir", but this one uses the title "Amir". Perhaps it makes a difference in Arabic?

I find Trump's argument regarding his Twitter account interesting given that he constantly encourages the idea that the First Amendment applies to the relationship between private business and individuals. It's not pure ignorance, it's deliberate support and encouragement of misinformation.

So he's arguing with a straight face that he's firing people by using his personal twitter account?

I think that is part. Do I think DJT knew the difference? :roll:

Yeah, but translating from Arabic to the Latin alphabet is not a pure science. أمير has many different translations, Emir being among the most popular.

You see that red X next to the speaker control? Now I have to go cast this from my phone to my Roku because I want to hear this song.

I'll be back with a review.

If you want to know which country we are threatening to bomb, which leaders are inept (all of them — May is the latest), how awesome Kim is, or what a state visit with QEII and the Prince of Whales is like, you have to read his personal account. And if you’re an American you should not and IMHO cannot be denied access.

Yikes. I think my Roku has now been infected with playing non-stop music from the '20s. Not what I was expecting, but really kind of good. Was he playing a ukulele?

I had to reclaim Roku and re-tune to Journey. :rockon:

Maybe I misunderstood. I was looking to read what you referred to read. I'm dense sometimes :geezertowel: . Correct me if I didn't get the reference.

I read this as "if you want to know what's going on in trump's administration, you have to read his personal twitter account (as opposed to any government-sponsored account) because that's where trump tweets the real scoop" and then "trump shouldn't block people on his personal twitter account, because that's where he posts the real information from his administration (like the appellate court said)."

Thanks, Estiveo. I remember my Dad singing ABDUL ABULBUL AMIR. But he boomed it out in a LOUD lower pitched voice.

Klayman and Loomer were thrilled by the ruling, with a what's-good-for-the-goose attitude.

With the president being the government going totally over their heads.

I'm less convinced that Rep. AOC can block, but the president cannot.

No, you don't have to look at trump's twitter feed. That wasn't the point of RvInit's post. She wasn't only saying that because trump's personal twitter feed is where he posts the important stuff about his administration, he can't block American citizens from his personal twitter feed. She wasn't talking about any 3rd party scoop.
