Does the First Amendment to the
United States Constitution protect a private social media company’s
right to moderate content on its platform?
A new ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit says it does not, and that a Texas law preventing viewpoint discrimination on social media platforms is constitutional.
