Those teams accused Twitter, Facebook, Google, and others of overstepping their authority, arguing that left-wing activists could possibly be silenced within the close to future.
“A platform should not apply one set of rules to most of its users, and then apply a more permissive set of rules to politicians and world leaders who are already immensely powerful. Instead, they should be precisely as judicious about removing the content of ordinary users as they have been to date regarding heads of state,” EFF wrote in January.
