Can elected officials sue social media?


Yes, elected officials can indeed take legal action against social media companies if they are deplatformed. There is specific legislation in Florida that addresses this. According to the law, if a social media company removes an elected official from their platform, they could be fined every single day for such an action. This includes any elected position, be it president, governor, or senator. This was part of an effort by the governor of Florida to ensure that elected officials are not arbitrarily or unfairly removed from social media platforms 1 .
