UN Secretary General calls for regulation of social media

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for a global legal framework to regulate powerful social media institutions.

He told a news conference in New York yesterday that it was dangerous for several companies to have the power to control critical statements that affect society.

The UN Secretary General has commented on Twitter and Facebook in particular.

Many believe that Former President Trump’s Twitter posts contributed to the recent riots in Washington, DC.

Steps were taken to suspend President Trump’s Twitter account.

The UN Secretary-General said that steps should be taken to prevent such decisions by a proper mechanism and not by a company.
