バッファローシューターの恐ろしいライブストリームを削除したことでTwitchが訴えられる可能性があります
新しい法律, called HB 20, allows residents to sue social media sites, including Facebook, ツイッター, and YouTube for allegedly censoring their content

けいれん could be sued in テキサス for removing the channel of the バッファロー mass shooter under a new censorship law.

オン 14 五月, a ガンマン with a rifle and body armour opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York in a predominantly Black neighbourhood. It is believed that the suspect had specifically targeted Black victims and, of the thirteen people in total shot, 11 were Black.

The gunman streamed the massacre – which is the deadliest mass shooting in the United States in 2022 – on the Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch. The company said that it took the video within two minutes of the violence starting; it was then shared on other social media sites.

The tragedy, しかしながら, comes as a new law in Texas makes it illegal for any social media platform with 50 million or more US monthly users to “ブロック, 禁止, 削除する, deplatform, demonetize, de-boost, restrict, deny equal access or visibility to, or otherwise discriminate against expression.It is unclear exactly what this terminology means.

Twitch was 推定 to have 40 million viewers in the United States at the start of 2020, a figure that has likely risen drastically as a side-effect of the coronavirus pandemic.

新しい法律, called HB 20, allows residents to sue social media sites, including Facebook, ツイッター, and YouTube for allegedly censoring their content, and would force them to carry legal speech no matter how upsetting its contents.

HB 20 だった successfully blocked by the US Supreme Court late last year, but has been unblocked by an appeals court last Wednesday without explanation.

Its origin stems from a belief held by House Republicans that tech platforms discriminate against conservative views – something which technology companies have routinely denied and for which there is little evidence. In a strange appeals hearing before the court’s decision, one judge claimed that Twitter, フェイスブック, and other social media websites are “internet providers” and “are not websites”.

Some have argued the bill is unconstitutional because it amounts to government-mandated speech. “Texas HB 20 strips private online businesses of their speech rights, forbids them from making constitutionally protected editorial decisions, and forces them to publish and promote objectionable content,” said free speech trade association NetChoice counsel Chris Marchese in a プレスリリース.

“The First Amendment prohibits Texas from forcing online platforms to host and promote foreign propaganda, ポルノ, pro-Nazi speech, and spam.”

しかしながら, the First Amendment also protects content including vaccine disinformation, Holocaust denialism, and terrorist content. Democratic representatives put forward a carve-out so social media companies could take down such content, but the Republican house defeated each attempt.

As well as the Buffalo gunman’s video, this law would also force Facebook, ツイッター, YouTube, and other social media platforms to allow content from the Taliban, ISIS, and other international terrorist organisations.

Twitch did not respond to a request for comment from 独立者 公開前.
