    I think when a social media company gets as powerful as Facebook or Twitter it is only right that they are regulated. Such companies have enormous political power and foreign/national powers may well seek to control them and the narrative that runs through them.

    As things stand it is clear that the big western social media companies have a left-liberal bias that needs regulating.

    Did Twitter get people to fact check when the WHO implied that Covid 19 was not transmittable between people?

    I think it’s a step too far. But the question of who fact-checks the fact-checkers is an important one. The capricious and political use of their labelling and anti-Trump sources, all of whom endorse opposing candidates, makes plain their motives, which seems to me to score points against Trump and to influence the election.
