Title: Texas hearts 8kun
Post by: TheDrake on May 23, 2022, 11:20:53 AM
Appeals court is going to let Texas try to turn all of the internet into 8kun, preventing people on LARGE social media platforms from banning people based on their "viewpoint". So presumably no impact to Trump Social when they ban the libs.

The law, signed by Gov. Greg Abbott on Sept. 9, would ban platforms with more than 50 million monthly users in the U.S. from removing a user over a “viewpoint” and require them to publicly report information about content removal and account suspensions. It was set to take effect Dec. 2.

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman wrote that the First Amendment protects social media platforms’ right to moderate content and rejected the defendants’ argument that such companies are “common carriers.” Pitman also ruled that some aspects of the law were “prohibitively vague.”

I love it when they violate the actual First Amendment in the process of saying they are supporting the First Amendment.
