Local documentarian Billy Corben has claimed on his Twitter and Facebook feeds that the Broward Sheriff's Office twitter account blocked him over a tweet regarding a story of one of their deputies being arrested for shoplifting.
The issue came up late Thursday night after Corben tweeted a story linked to CBS12.com about Deputy Theodore Parrish being charged for shoplifting food items from Walmart.
Moments after that tweet, Corben tweeted a screen grab of the BSO twitter feed blocking him from following them. Corben also took to Facebook and questioned BSO's transparency.
But there's also a greater question here: Is the BSO twitter feed violating public records laws by blocking people from seeing their tweets?
