President Donald Trump was just forced out and Republicans are absolutely furious. As votes are still being counted, millions of Americans are wondering what will happen now.
“Amid the most disputed election results in recent history, Twitter continues to censor the President of the United States,” reported Breitbart News. The social media platform has censored “30 percent” of his tweets “in the last 24 hours.”
These tweets “have been tagged with a warning from Twitter calling them ‘disputed,’ and linking to a Twitter ‘fact check’ — which usually consists of claims from the Democrat-aligned mainstream media,” Breitbart continued.
Essentially, Twitter has forced Trump out of the platform by only allowing some of his tweets to pass through without a disclaimer. The company’s actions are absurd, subjective, and another object lesson for the problem at hand.
That is, of course, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. It gives social media platforms special protections by not treating them as publishers — and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants to do something about it.
“My mission in life, if I come back to the Senate, in the next session, is to eliminate Section 230 liability protections for social media companies,” said Graham. Well, he was just reelected by a wide margin. It will be time for action soon.
