Constitutional Right to: ... Twitter, Facebook?

Lord help us all if it is a Constitutional right, but apparently the USSC is hearing arguments in a case that may ultimately answer that question.

Lester Packingham, who had pleaded guilty in 2002 to taking indecent liberties with a minor when he was a 21-year-old college student. He received a suspended sentence and two years’ probation and was made to register as a sex offender.

Mr. Packingham came to the attention of the authorities in 2010, when he wrote on Facebook about having a traffic ticket dismissed. “God is good,” he wrote.

 The Justices are debating the right to use these social media platforms, as an aspect of their decision in the case.
