Florida Blocks Big Tech From Deplatforming Conservatives—But Legality In Question

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law Monday that levies hefty fines on social media companies that “deplatform” political candidates after conservatives widely criticized big tech giants like Facebook and Twitter for purportedly discriminating against them—but experts warn the legislation likely violates private companies’ First Amendment rights.

Under SB 7072, which will go into effect July 1, social media companies that “willfully deplatform” political candidates—by banning them either permanently or temporarily for more than 14 days—will now face a fine of $250,000 per day for candidates running for statewide office and $25,000 per day for candidates running for other offices.

Companies also cannot deplatform a “journalistic enterprise”—defined as a publication with more than 50,000 paid subscribers or 100,000 monthly users, as well as online video publishers and cable networks—“based on the content of its publication or broadcast.”

The law blocks candidates and journalistic groups from being “shadow banned,” in which social media companies take action “to limit or eliminate the exposure” of a certain account’s posts either through a person or through the platform’s algorithm, and imposes other limits on companies’ algorithms by requiring them to let users opt out of them.

The law empowers Floridians to sue social media companies for up to $100,000 in damages per claim if they feel the company hasn’t applied its standards for banning in a “consistent manner among its users” or if it takes action against a user without notifying them to explain the reasons behind it.

The provisions do not apply to companies that operate a “theme park or entertainment complex,” which is seen as a concession to the Walt Disney Company and their Disney+ platform given the company’s significant impact on Florida’s economy with Walt Disney World.

The exception would also apply to NBC/Universal and its platforms, which runs the theme park Universal Studios Orlando in the state.
