Both houses of legislature in Florida have passed a bill that would possibly stop tech companies from de-platforming politicians, allowing tech platforms to only suspend accounts of the politicians for 14 days.

According to reports, the legislation is awaiting nod from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is considered to be an ally of former US President Donald Trump.

As per the media report, tech companies may be fined USD 250,000 per day under this legislation if they continued the de-platforming beyond the 14-days window.

Former US President Donald Trump was an avid user of social media. But he was given the boot by major tech platforms like Twitter, Facebook and others with His tweets often criticised.

After the elections, Trump spent most of his time at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He is believed to have been close with Governor DeSantis and other high-ranking Republicans in the state.
