Facebook, Twitter and The Future of Free Speech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Online platforms are now the town square for creativity and social and political connection. This means that many of the most important decisions about content, access, and speech are now concentrated in the hands of a few private actors. When does art cross the line and get flagged on Facebook? Which tweets are staying up or coming down? When is a video too violent? How much censorship is just too much or not enough? Who should be the deciders? And how do you get your voice heard when you think content should be taken down or put back up? Join policy experts from the top platforms, the ACLU's Nicole Ozer, and Professor Jeffrey Rosen from the National Constitution Center to discuss what’s happening now and the future of free speech. Presented by The Knight Foundation
