In June, the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated a North Carolina law barring registered sex offenders from accessing social media websites on the grounds that the law violated the First Amendment. Packingham v. North Carolina, 137 S. Ct. 1730, 1738 (2017). In so holding, the Court recognized the importance of social media as a tool for public expression. Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy observed that social media websites “provide perhaps the most powerful mechanisms available to a private citizens to make his or her voice heard”—“allow[ing] a person with an Internet connection to ‘become a town crier with a voice that resonates farther than it could from any soapbox.’” Id. at 1737 (quoting Reno v. Am. Civil Liberties Union, 521 U.S. 844, 870 (1997)).
