February 9th According to Reuters on the 9th, the majority leader of the Mexican Senate proposed to reform Mexico’s federal telecommunications law.
One of them is to allow telecommunications regulators to regulate social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, and to supervise the suspension or shutdown of social media accounts.
It is reported that the social media included in the draft legislation of the Mexican Senate includes large social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
The report said that the Federal Telecommunications Regulatory Authority will establish a set of basic principles to protect “freedom of speech” on social media. Twitter and Facebook have not yet responded to this.
