Biden expressed particular concern about the handling of personal data, moderating extremist content, distorting competition and “violating” the civil rights of women and minorities.

“As my administration works to address these challenges with the legal authority we have, I urge Democrats and Republicans to unite to pass strong bipartisan legislation to hold Big Tech accountable,” he wrote.

The US president defended the imposition of rules that limit the way these companies collect and share personal data.

For him, companies must be responsible for the content they disseminate and the algorithms they use.

On the issue of competition, Biden accused the big platforms of promoting their own products, to the detriment of competitors.

“My vision for our economy is one where everyone – small and medium-sized businesses, family stores, entrepreneurs – can compete on equal terms with the biggest companies,” he said.
