Ethics watchdog: Facebook, Google, and Twitter should be prosecuted for illegal content (GOOG, FB, TWTR)

Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other web firms are likely to face new sanctions in the UK about hosting abusive content on their platforms.

The removal of the president’s megaphone shows up the power and dangers of social mediaIf his name ever leaks out, the unnamed Twitter employee who deleted President Trump’s account for 11 minutes need never pay for a drink again.
