Trump Signs Executive Order To Limit Powers Of Social Media Platforms

Trump

American President, Donald Trump, has signed an executive order which is targeting social media firms.

The order was signed Thursday, May 27, 2020. That was days after Twitter referred to two of his tweets “potentially misleading.”

The order aims to curtail the power of large social media platforms by reinterpreting a critical 1996 law that shields websites and tech companies from lawsuits.

In a statement delivered from his Oval Office ahead of the signing, the US President, highly noted for tweeting, indicated that the decision was to “defend free speech from one of the gravest dangers it has faced in American history.”

According to him,
“A small handful of social media monopolies controls a vast portion of all public and private communications in the United States,” he claimed. “They’ve had unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit, shape, hide, alter, virtually any form of communication between private citizens and large public audiences.”
