Lately there’s been a lot of confusion on Twitter on who’s allowed to make political comments. I feel like this is a super important topic and decided to create a guide to help those who aren’t sure if they’re allowed to comment on politics- whether it’s about Trump, Flint, DAPL, etc. This guide is formatted in a Q&A style for simplicity reasons.

Q: I’m a blogger, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m an author, can I share  my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m a celebrity, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m from a different country, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m a millennial, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m just now learning about politics, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m not a straight, white male, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I am a straight, white male, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m pro-life, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I’m pro-choice, can I share my political views?

A: YES

Q: I am (literally anything), can I share my political views?

I hope this guide is extremely helpful for anyone who was confused! Remember- if someone doesn’t ‘fit’ into this guide you should definitely troll them on the internet and refer them to this guide. Happy tweeting!


Real talk: Everyone and anyone has the right to voice their opinion without having to face negative backlash. That’s the beauty of freedom of speech. We all have opinions and they all deserve to be heard and respected. Whoever you are and whatever you believe: You are important. Your voice is important. Don’t you ever let someone take that away from you!

As the wonderful Ellen DeGeneres always says, “Be kind to one another”.
