    There might be some other law that covers it, though.
    There is a circuit split with regard to whether a webpage may be a public accommodation under the ADA. The Civil Rights Act has even narrower categories for accommodations.

    I would think it would depend on the scope of the website. Something small like theologyweb would have more room to "discriminate" (even though we make it a point that everyone is welcome as members here, we also reserve the right to ban anyone we want for any reason) than something as popular as Twitter or Facebook which have almost taken on the mantle of an Internet Utility, like the phone company. Just about everyone uses them.

    The Civil Rights Act has explicit and narrow categories, which is the problem. No kind of webpage falls into its categories. Furthermore, the ADA by some circuits has been read to require a physical location for public accommodations purposes (though some, like the First Circuit, read public accommodations as broad). You're better off looking at other regulations, or state regulations (even in that arena, it can be very dicey -- the D.C. District Court just read the D.C. Human Rights Act or w/e to not include internet sites). This is a topic I've been following, so trust me on this one. It's not clear and there's little case law.

    But that is just a person to person app. What do they use for group social media?
