Trump to sign executive order on social media Thursday

President Trump is set to sign an executive order “pertaining to social media” on Thursday, which includes a review of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which exempts online platforms from liability for users’ posts, Reuters reports.

A draft of the order says the White House Office of Digital Strategy will re-establish a tool for reporting online censorship, the White House Tech Bias Reporting Tool.

The announcement follows a multiday feud between the president and Twitter.

The social media giant applied for the first time an informational label to one of the president’s tweets on Tuesday.
