US Supreme Court to hear landmark social media cases

·1 min

The US Supreme Court is considering two cases that could significantly impact social media. The court will decide if states can give Texas and Florida more control over social media platforms and their content. The central question is whether these platforms can decide what content is allowed and what can be removed. Texas and Florida want to prevent platforms from removing users’ posts, even if they contain hate speech or false information about elections. Supporters argue that the laws regulate business behavior, while opponents claim they infringe on platforms’ First Amendment rights. The Supreme Court’s decision could influence future elections.
