The American administration has decided to question the immunity of American platforms such as Twitter.

This immunity is problematic, because if freedom of expression requires a form of abstention from the public authorities, it is nevertheless threatened when a platform such as twitter takes the initiative to intervene on content posted by its users, without assuming the consequences.

This decree could therefore go in the direction of better protection for nationals of non-US countries, who find it difficult to engage the responsibility of the major US platforms when their rights are flouted (within the meaning, in particular, of their own local law governing the freedom of expression).
