But, now any post or quote they touch better not have ANY defamatory content (in whole or in part...development) and that is something they CANNOT avoid if they are going around posting or editing news stories from other sources that are liable for their own content. They don't get the automatic defense of 230.It’s not an all or nothing determination.And by doing so, they have become the "information content provider."But they made themselves the official "truth tellers" and that is not their role.
(3)Information content provider
The term “information content provider” means any person or entity that is responsible, in whole or in part, for the creation or development of information provided through the Internet or any other interactive computer service.
No one doubts that Twitter can be liable for the information that they themselves publish. That doesn’t mean they’re liable for all information on the entire website.
The court case you provided demonstrates that.
I know this seems really "cut and dry" to you, but you clearly are NOT seeing the problem this creates for Twitter et al.
