A few days after leaving the White House, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, was permanently banned from Twitter, one of its main megaphones. Taken in the wake of the invasion of the seat of the US Legislative Assembly, the measure was due, according to the company, to “the risk of a new incitement to violence” by the Republican.
Faced with the suspension, Trump supporters have migrated to Speak, a social network that says it is a “free speech” option because it has no moderation in posts. In Brazil, for example, President Jair Bolsonaro has invited his supporters to join us. The platform, however, has been banned from Google and Apple stores and removed from Amazon’s servers in recent days for serving violent content.
In the midst of discussions on the limits of freedom of expression and the regulation of networks, this Tuesday (12) Café da Manhã listens to the director of InternetLab, Francisco Brito Cruz, and the professor of the USP (University of São Paulo ) Pablo Ortellado talk about the decisions made by technology companies.
