“Tech companies...recognize that inaction toward certain crucial types of misinformation puts them at greater risk of regulation...yet, if any single platform acts too forcefully, it risks provoking the wrath of the hyper-partisan influencers...Social-media companies find themselves in the position of having to act decisively and collectively—and yet, collective action begets further allegations of collusion” (Renée DiResta, 2021).
