That’s not as crazy a question as it might first appear. I do think that we have more serious issues to deal with first, but once people aren’t starving or homeless in this country, we SHOULD focus on giving everyone internet access. A human with an internet enabled smartphone is, in terms of capability to influence the world around them, an entirely separate species than a human without a smartphone. Expecting a human with no internet access to compete in our society against a human with a 4g smart phone is like expecting a sprinter to outrun someone with cybernetic legs.
But that’s internet access in general. What about the right to post on one specific social media platform? How is a business that can’t advertise on Facebook going to compete with one that can?
At the same time, Twitter is a private company and they have the right to choose who to work with. If they think that not banning Trump will hurt their bottom line, they’ll ban him. And misinformation is such a huge problem that we need to get a handle on it, and preventing the social media sites from banning problem users would hamstring them in this fight.
All in all, I don’t think we need to ensure everyone has social media access at this time. But our society could conceivably move along lines that make it harder and harder to exist without a social media presence. The smart thing to do would be to avoid ever becoming that reliant on social media, but we don’t always take the smartest route. If the role of social media in society grows even more than it already has, we might get to a point where we need to ensure everyone has access to social media.
