    The future of social media

    On Wednesday's Backchat, banned! - the future of social media.

    Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has said permanently suspending Donald Trump was the right thing to do, but at the same time it set a dangerous precedent. Should 'big tech' - social media monsters like Facebook and Twitter - have the right and responsibility to remove content they think is dangerous, to society or to individuals - or is that a direct threat to free speech?

    Have we painted ourselves into a corner with social media where the loudest voices get all the attention, no matter how wrong they are? Is better moderation the answer, or more regulation? Who gets to say what social media rules should be?

    Let us know your thoughts, you can leave a message on our Facebook, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk or give us a call on 23388266.
