It’s no secret conservatives are unhappy with how social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter moderate. Following the Capitol riots and subsequent decisions these businesses made to remove harmful content and high-profile individuals like former President Donald Trump from their platforms, many on the right are saying the large social media companies wield too much power over public discourse. Some even argue social media sites are effectively modern “public squares” that should be prevented from moderating most forms of content by the First Amendment. Justice Clarence Thomas even entertained this idea in his latest Supreme Court concurrence in Biden v. Knight First Amendment Institute.
