The US Supreme Court is set to determine whether state laws that restrict social media platforms violate the Constitution.

Three days before the start of its new term, the court made its announcement as the justices continue to debate the applicability of rules from the early days of the internet to today’s online landscape. The Supreme Court decided on Friday to rule on the constitutionality of state laws that aim to regulate Facebook, TikTok, X, Instagram, and other social media platforms.

The justices will examine measures passed by Republican-controlled legislatures in Florida and Texas and signed by Republican governors. Both regulations, though they have different specifics, are meant to stop social media corporations from limiting users based on their political views.

The United States Supreme Court is now poised to weigh in on a significant legal question: whether state laws aimed at limiting the activities of social media platforms violate the U.S. Constitution.

The US Supreme Court has said that during its forthcoming nine-month term, it will rule on the constitutionality of state legislation in Texas and Florida that restricts the power of social media companies to filter content. These state legislation, passed in 2021, are allegedly in violation of the First Amendment’s safeguards for free speech, according to two lawsuits lodged by organizations representing the technology sector, including NetChoice and the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA).

Justices Barrett, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts voted in favor of approving the emergency request made by two technology sector groups that had filed a legal challenge against the statute.

The laws would have continued to be in force if they had been upheld by Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch. Alito expressed disapproval in his dissenting opinion, stating that “social media platforms have transformed the way people communicate with each other and obtain news.”

According to Texas law, social media businesses with more than 50 million active users per month are not allowed to ban people based on their political views. Users or the Texas attorney general may file a lawsuit to compel compliance with the legislation. Large platforms are required by Florida law to host some speeches that they might otherwise choose not to, like those of political candidates or media organizations.

These laws have been the subject of conflicting rulings from lower courts. Certain parts of the Florida statute have been declared unlawful, but the Texas law has been upheld. Conservative voices are silenced by social media platforms, according to proponents of these legislation, who cite instances like the suspension of then-President Donald Trump’s Twitter account after the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol as proof. On the other side, those who support content moderation stress the need for it in order to combat false information and extremist content. The Supreme Court’s decision will clarify the matter by determining how governments can control the content on non-public platforms
