However, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsi, including lawmakers, on Tuesday agreed to the need to change the disputed section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act. Section 230 generally provides immunity for website publishers from third party content and states that a provider or user of an interactive computer service as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider Will not be considered. This stream was created to give new technologies a chance to develop.

Dorsi admitted in a hearing before a judicial committee of the US Senate that there were concerns about how Twitter moderates its content, and especially questions about using Section 230. The Senate Judicial Committee is hearing on the censorship and 2020 elections.
