So today, I saw an article about the Supreme Court essentially calling Facebook, Twitter, et al "the modern public square", as they struck down a North Carolina law that forbid sex offenders from having social media accounts. The bit I want to talk about is quoted here: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy...xcluded-from-social-media-supreme-court-says/ This decision, on its own, seems fairly narrow, but it's got some far-reaching implications. If social media is "the modern public square", what does that mean when it comes to access to social media? What would that make banning a user? It seemed like a good topic for conversation, and I was curious what DLP has to say on it. Personally, I like the idea. I definitely approve of extending first amendment rights into the digital space, though, as always, some implementation details will need to be done carefully. I've always felt that bans are significantly worse than simply emphasizing the ignore function, but that's just me. If nothing else, I'm certainly intrigued by what the Court means when they say "This case is one of the first this Court has taken to address the relationship between the First Amendment and the modern Internet", and what they see that relationship as.
