Summary by Ground NewsA federal appeals court upheld a Texas law on Friday that seeks to curb censorship by social media platforms.

The lawsuit is challenging HB 20, a Texas bill signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott that regulates social media platforms with more than 50 million monthly users, which includes Google, Facebook and Twitter, and says they cannot censor or limit users’ speech based on viewpoint expression.
