While removing accounts disseminating hate speech, disinformation, and other forms of violent and extreme expressions on social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram may be a quick and convenient solution, we need to be thinking about others forms of solution as well.
It seems that more stringent implementations of prior restraint against malignant expressions in the Internet with legal consequences for offenders would be immediately pragmatic. We must take more substantial legal actions to hold the perpetrators legally accountable, although this is by no means the only measure we should take to deter such crime, as banning accounts through deplatforming nips the problem nowhere near its bud, not to mention its root.
But again, how far should we go with prior restraint without violating the spirit of the First Amendment right of freedom of speech?
“The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a iman in falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic.” - Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes in Schenck v. United States
