Florida to fine social media for banning politicians

A controversial new bill that would stop tech companies from deplatforming politicians has been approved by both houses in Florida’s legislature.

The bill must now be signed off by Trump ally, Governor Ron DeSantis.

The legislation allows platforms to suspend accounts, but only for 14 days, and could fine the platforms as much as $250,000 per day for violating the law.

UPDATE: This law should be expanded to fining social media for banning any legal act of free speech. Those huge platforms can offer filters that allow users to filter out information they do not want to see.
