Section 230 a provision of the Communication Decency Act was enacted by U.S Congress in 1996 primarily in response to concerns about minors’ access to pornography via the internet.
In a nutshell, due to the amount of random questionable material uploaded to the internet many ISP’s (internet service providers) thought they would be in big trouble if someone uploaded the material using their access they provided. Likewise Wikipeadia felt because it’s site is fully a user run site where all of the pages are uploaded by users that Wikipedia feared questionable material Could be included in a Wikipedia page fear they would be held responsible. Today social media feared the same. So to prevent lawsuits where social media and the like would be put out of business early on the provision of section 230 gives these open platforms immunity from being sued for any questionable material in picture or word form. In other words the governments got your back social media sites.
Twitter & Facebook are both immune from punishment if a user uploads or types vulgar or porn or questionable material or racist comments onto these sites.
So, if they receive immunity why are the censoring peoples. And how are they allowed to get away with censoring? Censoring on an open forum is illegal isn’t it? A violation of my first amendment, my freedom of speech? My free expression?
If it’s not illegal for SM sites to censor how can we stop them?
