Author Stephen King on Tuesday said on Twitter that President Donald Trump had blocked him from his personal account on the site.

King has long been a prolific critic of the president on Twitter. For example, he tweeted this just a few hours before Trump blocked him:

The move comes at a time when Trump appears to have blocked numerous others, including a VoteVets, a veterans advocacy group and critics Jordan Uhl and Brandon Neely.

White House social media director Dan Scavino did not respond to a request for comment about the blocks. Trump has created so much activity on Twitter that the service is having trouble handling all the @ replies his tweets receive.
