‘Facebook should block everyone in Florida’: Social media law signed by Ron DeSantis slammed by experts and users alike

Carl Szabo, the vice president at trade association NetChoice, which includes some of the companies affected by the law, told The New York Times that the legislation was “a gross misreading of the First Amendment”.

He added that the First Amendment was designed to protect sites like Reddit from politicians, not “politicians from Reddit”.

Mr Szabo told The Washington Post: “If this law could somehow be enforced, it would allow lawful but awful user posts including pornography, violence and hate speech that will make it harder for families to safely navigate online.”
