The freedom to speak, the freedom to tweet, the freedom to troll?

7.15pm, Monday 16th September, The Groucho Club

16 years ago Facebook arrived on the scene followed shortly by Twitter. We thought it was going to open up pleasant social discourse. How wrong we were. Now comes the question of whether online content - should be regulated. Arguing this corner is Seyi Akiwowo. Seyi has a wealth of both lived experience and expertise on tech related violence and founded the company Glitch, a young and ambitious not-for-profit organisation that exists to end online abuse. But does this challenge free speech and who decides where to draw the line? Jodie Ginsberg, chief executive of Index on Censorship and defender of free speech will be joining us to give an alternative view. Which side are you on?
