I've been thinking about how much of my local government uses X for official communications, and how I now have to have an account for a site known for spreading disinformation and hate speech just to be able to see posts by my elected officials.

I wonder if there's a legal path, at least in my state, towards legally challenging government use of X.

Once I delete my remaining X accounts, as I plan to, I'll be cut off entirely from any government communications over X, and there aren't always alternative sources of this information.

I shouldn't have to generate ad revenue for Elon Musk and agree to his terms to see these communications. My taxes pay for them, give me them somewhere that is publicly visible, and stop hiding anything behind a membership wall.

Once X starts charging everyone subscription fees, this will only be worse.

@Alex not a perfect solution but there’s always
