Is the First Amendment relevant in the age of social media?

September 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Some major questions to consider with the First Amendment and it’s association with social media are: To what extent does the First Amendment apply to social media companies like Facebook and Twitter? Should the First Amendment apply to their decisions limiting who has access to their platforms? Should social media platforms aspire to apply First Amendment principles?
