The enormous challenges of moderating content and enabling free expression on the Internet became even more challenging in 2020. Internet companies, government officials, and leading experts dealt with election and voter misinformation at enormous scale. Just as the New Year rang in the new decade, the pandemic made content moderation a life and death challenge for everyone.
