Bolsonaro signs new bill to limit tech giants’ power to remove content

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has signed a decree aimed at restricting the powers of social media companies to remove accounts and content.
Mr Bolsonaro said a change of regulations was needed to combat the “arbitrary removal” of profiles.
He said the new legislation would help protect freedom of speech.
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Twitter and Facebook have removed many posts shared by the president and his supporters that were deemed misleading.
