Repealing Section 230 could have unintended consequences for Trump and conservatives

Representatives for the technology industry, which is opposed to changing Section 230, have argued that repealing the law to crack down on large companies like Facebook and Twitter would also undermine other online companies and ultimately hurt innovation.

“We’re talking about thousands of websites that use this law every single day,” said Carl Szabo, vice president of NetChoice, an industry group representing Facebook, Twitter and Google. “If we want to turn the internet into a cesspool, amending Section 230 is the easiest way.”
