The court recognizes that there's no right to speak to the President in a way that the President is obliged to read; the President remains free, for instance, to use Twitter's "mute" function, which would keep him from seeing the user's replies when he reviews his own feed.
US President Donald Trump's practice of blocking Twitter users who publicly criticise him has been banned by a federal judge who ruled the practice breaches US free speech laws. At that time, Judge Buchwald urged both parties to find a resolution outside of court.
Buchwald's ruling was in response to a First Amendment lawsuit filed against Trump in July by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and several Twitter users.
A Justice Department spokeswoman said "We respectfully disagree with the court's decision and are considering our next steps".
Cohen said Trump had not yet unblocked him as of late Wednesday afternoon.
White House Chimes in on 'Laurel or Yanny' Debate
In the clip, staffers are seen listening to the viral recording from Reddit where listeners were asked which sound they heard. Who's yanny? I hear coffefe". "When there is more energy towards the mid and higher frequencies, people tend to hear "Yanny".
In what might just be one of the more freaky tech stories of the week, the judge's decision is the result of a case brought against the President by a group of Twitter users he'd blocked.
The Knight Institute and the individual Twitter users claimed in their lawsuit that by blocking users for their views, Mr Trump was shutting them out of discussion in a public forum, violating the First Amendment.
These claimants can not view Trumps tweets, reply to them or see the comments thread underneath them.
In a March hearing, Judge Buchwald had suggested that Mr. Trump has the right to ignore whomever he pleases on Twitter, and that the "Mute" feature is a constitutional option for doing so.
It hasn't been a particularly good week on social media for Trump, as a survey by TwitterAudit surfaced recently which showed that over 10 million of his Twitter followers aren't real people. The judge ordered Trump to unblock his account.

As the Brexit negotiations continue, Leo Varadkar is meeting Theresa May today at the EU's Western Balkans summit in Sofia . The U.K. said on Thursday that it will make a formal proposal for post-Brexit customs arrangements soon.
While the ruling narrowly targets the Trump administration and is not binding on other public officials, it establishes an important legal precedent that they will be likely to follow.
Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, said he thinks the case was wrongly decided and expects it to be reversed.
Twitter declined to comment on the ruling while the White House and the U.S. Department of Justice, which represents the president in the case, did not immediately comment. "That is much less restrictive and burdensome on the plaintiffs' speech rights".
