In Gonzalez v. Google, the court said it didn’t have to decide whether Section 230 should be construed because the case included YouTube recommendations.
Gonzalez v. Google
After hearing arguments in Gonzalez v. Google and Twitter v. Taamneh, the Supreme Court ultimately decided not to reconsider Section 230. Justice Clarence Thomas claimed that Twitter did not meaningfully participate in an illegal act because it did not monitor terrorist content.
Because it did not undermine Section 230, which is still crucial to the modern internet, civil liberties activists have lauded the Gonzalez case as evidence that recommendation algorithms are not intentionally pushing content.
