Supreme Court Rules Unanimously in Favor of Twitter in Case Concerning Allegations of Liability for Suggesting Videos Promoting Violent Militant Islam

The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Twitter in a case concerning allegations that YouTube was liable for suggesting videos promoting violent militant Islam. The court declined to address the application of the law, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, to the family's claims, and unanimously ruled that such claims could not be brought under the Anti-Terrorism Act. This decision is a victory for internet companies, who have said that Section 230 has helped the internet flourish, and serves as a reminder of the importance of the law in protecting internet companies from liability for user-generated content.
