On May 29, the president of the United States of America tweeted, simply, “REVOKE 230!” The message was all caps, with an exclamation mark for good measure.
The message was nothing, if not direct, following the issuing of an executive order, which, among other things, seeks to strip away key protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
Today, four Republican senators sent an open letter to the FCC, urging chairman Ajit Pai to examine the “special status” afforded to social media sites under the statute.
We therefore request that the FCC clearly define the framework under which technology firms, including social media companies, receive protections under Section 230.
Pai previously voiced a disinterest in regulating social media sites in that manner.
