The Technology 202: Here’s how Trump’s executive order is expected to target tech companies

NetChoice, a trade association representing tech companies including Facebook and Google, released a statement on Thursday morning condemning the president’s order.

“The president is trampling the first amendment by threatening the fundamental free speech rights of social media platforms,” said Steve DelBianco, president of NetChoice, in a statement. “Conservatives should be very afraid of future administrations following President Trump’s example to bully social media platforms into suppressing political speech.”
