Mueller's investigation has shown us that Russia used social media in attempts to swing the 2016 election to Trump, maybe successfully. I have my doubts, since it was the Electoral College system that enabled Trump to win even though three million more voters went to HRC. Thats quite a bit, and the EC is pretty hard to predict due to its convoluted implementation that allows strange things to happen, such as rogue delegates voting against what the voters want.

Meanwhile, social media seems to be going hot guns despite it being used against the democratic process to undermine our nation, a cyber warfare tactic from the Russians. Who, BTW, have continued to be our cold-war enemies despite Reagan's supposed victory over communism, GWB's touching of Putin's devilish soul, and Trump's admiration of the same man.

Should a law be passed that tries to eliminate the political use of social media by organizations?

What would the benefits or drawbacks be for such a law?

And tongue-in-cheek, how will we ever survive without social media?
