Choice of forum clauses are somewhat problematic in California.Mikedunford wrote: ↑Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:39 pmI forgot about Pruneyard.
Interestingly, and perhaps relevantly, the Twitter ToS contains a governing law clause that specifies California law. That's potentially good news for Johnson (although I'm unconvinced that Pruneyard is sufficiently on-point).
On the bad news front for Johnson, the ToS also contains a forum clause. And it ain't Fresno.

The Hill: GOP rep invited alt-right activist to the State of the Union:
Moar at the Daily Beast:Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz invited an activist affiliated with the white supremacist "alt-right" movement to President Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday, the Daily Beast reported Wednesday.
Gaetz said that he invited Chuck Johnson to the address when he "showed up at my office" on Tuesday, according to the Daily Beast report. The congressman, who has risen in prominence amid a Republican push to release a GOP House Intelligence Committee memo on alleged surveillance abuses, said he did not have a pre-existing relationship with Johnson, saying that he only had an extra ticket because his father came down with bronchitis.
Johnson gave a different explanation for his appearance at the congressional address, saying that while he received invitations from several members of Congress, he accepted Gaetz's invitation because "he's into stuff on the issues that I care about," including the cryptocurrency bitcoin and marijuana.
Johnson runs a crowdfunding site that has raised tens of thousands of dollars for legal fees related to the white supremacist website the Daily Stormer, as well as various other figures in the alt-right movement.
Johnson has also said that the actual number of Holocaust victims is far lower than the accepted total, and questioned whether gas chambers were used at Nazi concentration camps, though he maintains that he is not a Holocaust denier.
Inviting Johnson to the State of the Union isn't Gaetz's only recent brush with conspiracy theory culture. Earlier this week, Gaetz appeared on prominent pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Alex Jones's online show, Infowars. In his appearance, Gaetz complained about being described as a conspiracy theorist.
Johnson offered a different explanation of how the evening came together. Initially, he said he and Gaetz were introduced by another member of Congress, whom he declined to name. . . .
Asked about Gaetz’s differing account, Johnson said, “I’ll go with whatever version Gaetz says because I’m not a gangster rapper.”

Yes and his host was disgusting creep Matt Gaetz of the FL 1st Congressional District, he's Carl Gallups' congressman and a vile, repulsive character pushing every conspiracy theory and "the memo" which is going to blow up in him smirky face.
