AOC settles lawsuit after blocking critic on Twitter: 'It was wrong and improper'

Lord knows I have very little in common with AOC. 
But, I know what's it's like to have a nuisance lawsuit filed against me albeit for a different reason than she was sued for.   Suing for getting blocked om Twitter is bogus and shouldn't be allowed.  As often is the case, these lawsuits are a way to make some easy cash taking advantage of our crazy legal system. 

Washington Times reports Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez settled a lawsuit brought by a former Brooklyn lawmaker after blocking him from her Twitter account where she has nearly six million followers, according to multiple reports.

Dov Hikind, a former state Assemblyman, criticized the millennial socialist after she compared migrant detention centers to concentration camps. As a result, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez blocked him on Twitter.

He filed a lawsuit in July claiming she violated his First Amendment rights.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez issued an apology in accordance with the settlement, testifying in court last week, according to the New York Post.
