The Supreme Court will decide if state laws limiting social media platforms violate the Constitution

  • The Supreme Court will decide the constitutionality of Texas and Florida laws preventing social media companies from banning users over harmful rhetoric, with a ruling expected next year. The laws were introduced in 2021 after former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter for inflammatory posts surrounding the 2020 election and Capitol riot. The Biden administration has also asked the Supreme Court to determine if the laws infringe on tech companies' First Amendment rights.
  • Proponents of the laws argue that they ensure equal access to social media platforms, while tech companies claim they violate their free speech rights. Supporters portray social media companies as primarily liberal and hostile to ideas from the political right. The tech sector warned that the laws could hinder the removal of extremism and hate speech.
  • In addition to the social media cases, the Supreme Court may consider a lower-court order regarding executive branch officials' communications with social media companies about controversial online posts.
