Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Who should police social media? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
Social media firms pare coming under increasing pressure to remove content deemed offensive or illegal.
Twitter says it received a record number of government requests to delete tweets in the first six months of 2021.
The firm says the requests revealed a ‘deeply worrying trend’ against freedom of expression.
So is this censorship, or a way to maintain a safe and open internet for all?
