Meta is told to hand over Threads moderation documents as part of previous subpoena.

House judiciary chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) put the notice in a letter to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg today citing the company’s alleged censoring of “First Amendment-protected speech as a result of government agencies’ requests and demands in the past.” It’s the latest in Jordan and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s efforts to investigate censorship in tech.

Jordan also notes that Threads is marketed as a “rival” to Twitter, which has faced “political persecution” by the Biden Administration. The White House has been fighting a court battle over the ability to work with social networks on moderation.
