Judicial Committee in room asked the representatives halfthe company that owns the Facebook and Instagram platforms, to provide a series of information regarding content moderation on threadss, a messaging app developed to compete with Twitter.
The letter, signed by Republican Jim Jordan, was sent as part of the investigations launched by the committee into social media platforms and communications between the companies it operates and the Biden administration. “The threads application raises a number of questions, after it was developed to compete with Twitter: a social network, the latter, which has suffered real political persecution by the Biden administration, in the face of Elon Musk’s commitment to protecting freedom of expression,” reads the letter of the head of the commission. Jordan also indicated that the topics will adopt the guidelines used on the Instagram platform, which “led to restrictions on freedom of expression after pressure from the government.”
