OK to change Section 230, Facebook and Twitter CEOs say, but how remains elusive

“Both sides continue to blame Section 230 for contradictory problems,” said Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel of NetChoice, an industry group that represents Twitter, Facebook and other technology companies, in a statement.

“Section 230 gives websites the tools and space they need to best serve Americans and protect against election interference,” said Szabo. “Without Section 230, political misinformation and harmful content could run rampant online, alienating users and businesses that rely on an internet that balances free expression with online safety.”
