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, a former councillor and target of trolls, and now the founder of Fix The Glitch which is campaigning for platforms to take responsibility. 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?

This is a Trouble Club event.
