Social media providers are asking the Supreme Courtroom to reduce the enforcement of a Texas law they say prevents on line platforms from performing exercises editorial discretion about information and irreversibly tarnishes their firms.

The legislation, which handed a Republican-controlled legislature September 9, 2021, “prohibits an interactive computer service from censoring a user, a user’s expression, or a user’s capacity to get the expression of yet another human being based on … the viewpoint of the person or an additional particular person.” It also demands massive social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to disclose how they take care of material, to publish an acceptable use policy that buyers can find telling them what written content is appropriate, to publish quarterly transparency experiences, and to have a complaint method in put for violations of its policies.
