Raghav Mendiratta and Matthieu Boutard

Raghav Mendiratta and Matthieu Boutard discuss the regulation of social media on Twitter Spaces, on October 26, 2022.

More than 4 billion people worldwide use some form of social media, and with information traveling at nearly the speed of light, social media has had a seismic impact on the world. It’s fueled revolutions and social change, it’s made people billionaires, it’s cost people their jobs and it’s created a new arena for hate speech and cyberbullying. Doha Debates examines the global impact of social media, good and bad, with Raghav Mendiratta, a technology lawyer and fellow at the Future Free Speech Project, and Matthieu Boutard, managing director of Bodyguard, which built an app to fight online hate. We’ll discuss the question: Who should regulate social media?

The conversation took place on October 26, 2022, and was hosted by Nelufar Hedayat.
