Will Donald Trump be able to howl his messages on Facebook again? This is what the Supreme Court of the social network must arbitrate. Its blocking on January 7 was decreed after the attack on the Capitol, the mobilization of which was part of the social networks of the former president. Twitter has chosen to permanently block it. But Facebook will let this independent institution that it created a year ago decide to protect itself from criticism of its role in the spread of false information.

It is therefore its twenty “judges” who will soon deliver their verdict, attempting to respect a delicate balance between freedom of expression and respect for human rights. The decision will go beyond its simple case, since it generally concerns the issue of the suspension of accounts of political figures. It also confirms the weight of the social network, which has nearly 3 billion subscribers worldwide, and whose leader, Mark Zuckerberg, is convinced that he is “closer to a government than to a traditional company. “.
