🔵Tweeting “Free Speech”: Corporate Regulation, User Rights, and the Responsibilities of Both, by Elizabeth Lee-Abbey

“Fast and direct communication” is at the top of every catalog listing the benefits of social media. Ironically, the corporations overseeing social media are under scrutiny for interfering with some user communication. These interferences, known as filtering practices by some, have left many social media users questioning the boundaries of corporate action – action that others deem necessary for user protection.
This lecture surveys the various perspectives analyzing the current and evolving relationship between corporate action and user expression on social media platforms, with a focus on the real-life consequences that erupt from online tension and their impact on free speech.
