Following a multiday feud between the president of the united states, Donald Trump and Twitter, the president has just signed a special executive order on preventing online censorship that may affect many websites & business owners.
It all began when the social media giant applied for the first time an informational label to one of the president’s tweets on Tuesday that made the president to take it to the next level, protecting the freedom of speech and sign this executive order.
How Does It Affect You
The order includes all websites that publish user-generated content that is moderated. According to the executive order, as published in the post on this post on Search Engine Journal, a website who restricts any access to content that may be considered to be doing illegal action and can be prosecuted by the name of freedom of speech.
At the same time rather than increasing the freedom of speech, this executive order puts the user content websites open to legal actions by allowing to publish content that might be offensive, harassing, filthy, violent and more.
While it is now aimed towards the social media giants such as Twitter, Facebook & Google, you need to be aware of the fact you might need to be on top of the content published on your website.
This is probably not the end of that…
