Defending Free Speech

The platform formerly known as Twitter is suing the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) for attacking free speech on X. They claim that the CCDH has been “actively working to assert false and misleading claims encouraging advertisers to pause investment on the platform.”

Hate speech is protected speech and free speech purists know to protect even the speech that they don’t like. The CCDH is a non-governmental agency that seeks to silence speech that is critical about vaccines, climate and other topics that they call hateful. X claims that the agency has illegally gained access to its data and twisted that data to make “unsubstantiated assertions about X.”

The CCDH says that this legal action is “a brazen attempt to silence honest criticism and independent research in the desperate hope that he can stem the tide of negative stories and rebuild his relationship with advertisers.”
