Well, I'm in full favor of protecting 1st amendment rights.
However, there are limited limits. The old "you can't yell fire in a crowded movie house" comes to mind.
I should think the same rules apply to social media? I mean, that tweet that went out saying "there's going to be a PURGE at 3pm..etc" could the powers that be not have that taken down, blocked, etc?
I"m guessing no mechanism now..but shouldn't be hard to figure how to put filters on there, no?
I don't say this type thing lightly either, it is a slippery slope...in that righteous expressions that may be controversial, political and all could be in jeopardy, but I think it is something to be discussed.
You have plenty of rights to free speech, but incitement to riot isn't one of them.
At the very least...track down the folks that tweeted to riot, and throw the book at them. Maybe just use existing law to get those doing this would be better than a censorship method like I first proposed...it might not STOP a riot as well, but after awhile people *might* actually start getting wise that it isn't smart to incite a riot on social media of any form.
