President Trump, on tape, presses Georgia official to 'find' Trump votes

To begin with, the President of the United States is the last person in the world who could want a platform. Uh, but remember that free speech is not free speech without consequences. It means speech free from state consequences. And here it is a government spokesperson who is the actor. So when digital services switch content offline that they believe trigger violence and thus violate their terms of use, they are exercising their own, writes Speech. We do not want our users and the general public to be affected by this content, which is against our policies and may be against the law. Digital services have taken steps against inflammatory rhetoric in the past, especially when they violated their guidelines, in order to mislead users or otherwise create content that was inconsistent with what the President, as a user of the service, required to to stick to hers. Ah, we can have very in-depth political discussions about how deep the guidelines for moderating technology stack content as it should be implemented are deepened. But I don't think there is a question of whether or not you commit to any certain rules when you enter into a contract that the other party can say, hey, you made that commitment and finished the service. And that includes an internet user. It also includes an app that enables users to incite violence or otherwise engage in behavior they did not commit.
