So at the same time that anti-Section 230 people are complaining that "because of Section 230" big internet companies won't do anything about bad content, both Facebook and Twitter were removing thousands of Chinese accounts set up to promote disinformation in Hong Kong. 🤔
RT @davidakaye: twitter policy & safety are busy today https://blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/company/2019/information_operations_directed_at_Hong_Kong.html
Similarly, @TorEkelandPLLC completely ignores that 230 *also* creates incentives for companies to experiment with moderation and that public/business/moral pressure is what makes them moderate (as basically all of them do). And that moderation is only possible due to 230.
 
His complaint is that one of the companies he's suing did a bad job about that moderation, and he lost his case on 230 grounds. But that's not 230's fault.
 
Anyway, if he's going to say that 230 doesn't protect speech, only the 1st amendment does, that he should similarly concede that 230 isn't the problem -- bad moderation practices are. But he's not. Perhaps because he lost is case? It's a bad look either way.
Note the incorrect assumption here: that it is only about "harmful speech." That's why Tor's thread here is wrong. https://twitter.com/TorEkelandPLLC/status/1163144841984917509

Left out of this discussion: when Orwell wrote his works he knew they'd all be in the public domain by now. Only because of intense lobbying did his estate get to steal from the public and retain the copyright in the U.S. The Times seems to assume the public domain is evil. https://twitter.com/puiwingtam/status/1163462440039747584
 
Of a piece with the Times' coverage of most things related to any kind of tech platform angle...and this particular reporter seems to have a massive Amazon grudge that his editors seem to encourage.
