Elon Musk’s platform X, formerly Twitter, lost a bid to block a California law requiring social media platforms to disclose their content moderation policies.

The law aims to combat toxic social media posts and will require platforms to report data on how their policies are enforced.

Musk’s platform argued that the law pressures social media platforms to eliminate constitutionally protected content. (Trending: Melania Trump Announces Big Change For 2024)

Musk’s X alleges that the government is pressuring, “social media platforms to ‘eliminate’ certain constitutionally protected content viewed by the state as problematic.”

The newly signed A.B. 587 states, “Californians deserve to know how these platforms are impacting our public discourse.”

Musk has presented himself as a “free speech absolutist” but has faced tension with advertisers over objectionable content.

Two upcoming Supreme Court cases will address content moderation and free speech.
