“Altogether, attendees at the summit have half a billion social media followers and are reaching people directly without a media filter. That’s why their concerns about the implications of bias and censorship are so important,” said Bluey. “Heavy-handed government regulation is not the answer. Everyone who cares about free speech, regardless of their political beliefs, should want social media companies to be responsive to their users, not government. There’s evidence the market is working and social media companies are responding.”
