Ron DeSantis signs law against tech firms de-platforming political figures
Tech Firms may face legal action to remove politicians from their platforms. To put it in simpler terms, If Twitter will ban some politician from its platform it might face Legal action.
So, when we talk about ‘De-platforming’ politicians we know the Name that comes to your mind is Donald Trump. Twitter Banned him After the US Capitol incident. The incident claimed 6 innocent lives including a police officer.
Trump was found encouraging his followers using Twitter that Results of the recent Presidential Election are Forged. Which eventually led to Capitol violence. Joe Biden won that election and is the current US President. Twitter Removed Trump’s account after that incident.
According to Trump is the so-called Right to speech has literally claimed several lives. So, is it the Right Decision to enforce on Tech firms? That’s the big question. As an individual when you get to enjoy several rights be it in Any country it comes with a set of Duties to abide by it. It is really necessary for a politician to speak what they think right, that could urge people for violence? And that platforms can’t really do anything. Tell us in the comments.
