It's not just that we need to remember the women who lost their lives in Atlanta. We need to reject the increase in threats and condemn the attacks nationwide. An attack on our neighbors is an attack on all of us. #StopAsianHate

For smaller platforms, we need to be careful about any changes that we make that remove their immunity because that could hurt competition… First, platforms should have to issue transparency reports that state the prevalence of content across all different categories of harmful content… the second change that I would propose is creating accountability for the large platforms to have effective systems in place to moderate and remove clearly illegal content… I think it would be reasonable to condition immunity for the larger platforms on having a generally effective system in place.”
