The future of social media

2021-01-27
On Wednesday's Backchat, banned! - the future of social media.

Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has said permanently suspending Donald Trump was the right thing to do, but at the same time it set a dangerous precedent. Should 'big tech' - social media monsters like Facebook and Twitter - have the right and responsibility to remove content they think is dangerous, to society or to individuals - or is that a direct threat to free speech?

Have we painted ourselves into a corner with social media where the loudest voices get all the attention, no matter how wrong they are? Is better moderation the answer, or more regulation? Who gets to say what social media rules should be?
