The Hill quoted Yotam Ophir in an article on how Twitter’s ban of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reignited political battles over misinformation, inflammatory rhetoric and free speech. “Social media has huge power over our lives, over the flow of information in society,” Ophir said. “It has the power that 30 years ago only CNN or The New York Times would have had. I believe the government should have some more organized approach, because the government is representative of the people — as opposed to Mark Zuckerberg. How long are we going to allow a bunch of five or six tech CEOs to control all this information?”
