Twitter and Facebook (and other social media sites) recently became the focus of a lot of attention for the role they did or did not play in allowing the spread of information (or disinformation) regarding alleged rigging of the election in the USA and the Capitol riots. It seems that a conversation about the censure rights of big companies was getting started. I have two questions about this.
It seemed both Republicans and Democrats were in agreement that the social media companies had too much power (especially when Trump was removed from Twitter). Is this true? How do their views differ?
Is anything being done about this, or has it simply faded from everyone's attention?
