Download an mp3 of the interview from Bloomberg

Andrea Matwyshyn, a professor at Northeastern University Law School, and David Greene, Civil Liberties director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, discuss Twitter’s Wednesday victory after a federal judge ruled that the social media platform cannot be held responsible for the Islamic State’s use of the network to spread propaganda. Twitter claims that it’s already suspended 125,000 accounts linked to terror groups, but despite this, families of terror victims continue to file lawsuits against Twitter, Google, and Facebook, blaming the social media sites for the loss of their loved ones. They speak with Bloomberg Law host June Grasso on Bloomberg Radio’s "Bloomberg Law."
