Eric Goldman spoke with the New York Times about how Twitter has an opportunity to inject some life into the platform after its co-founder Jack Dorsey said recently he would relinquish his role as chief executive and, sometime next year, his board seat; to The San Antonio Express News about Texas’s recently enacted social media censorship law, HB20, which was just blocked in federal court; to Reuters about how landmark lawsuit by Rohingya refugees against Facebook is a “wake-up call” for social media firms and a test case for courts to limit their immunity; and to the UK Times about Clearview’s facial recognition technology and the implications for citizens’ rights. Professor Goldman also was a guest on Legal Talk Network podcast, where he discussed Section 230, keyword bidding, reviews, and emojis.

Eric Goldman, a Santa Clara University law professor, suggested to me a more radical approach: banning political accounts. “Every time Twitter tries to fact-check or moderate politicians, it makes another political enemy who becomes hellbent on regulating Twitter out of existence,” Mr. Goldman wrote in an email.
