Irina Raicu, director of Internet Ethics, comments.

"Irina Raicu, the director of the Internet Ethics programme at the Markkula Center at Santa Clara University raises the most uncomfortable prospect of all. 'To do this well, consistently, at the scale at which some of these platforms operate, is a gargantuan task. Is it outright impossible? And, if so, should we accept the idea of ungovernable channels that allow for the instantaneous distribution and amplification of information around the world?'"
