TWITTER AND FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE LOSE; THE FIRST AMENDMENT WINS
A federal appeals court just struck a massive victory for freedom of speech.

On Friday afternoon, in a brilliantly argued 90-page decision, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of a Texas law stopping the biggest social media companies from censoring their users.

The ruling will likely be appealed to the Supreme Court, setting up a hugely important battle. If the high court confirms the Fifth Circuit’s view, companies like Twitter will mostly lose the power to censor their users for legal speech. If not, their censorship could become even more aggressive.

Suppression of speech on Facebook and particularly Twitter was rare until the last three years. Now it is common - and mostly directed conservatives and people skeptical about Covid interventions and vaccines. (As you may have heard, I have some firsthand knowledge of the issue.)

The social media companies have successfully argued in other cases that their own First Amendment rights allow them to clamp down on users with opinions they don’t like.

It is about time but you know that they will just use a work around censoring and instead do more of their "prioritizing" algorithms that will shadow block and essentially stop certain posts from gaining any attention.
