Summary of Disinformation

Western social media giants will launch a joint effort to completely restrict the freedom of speech, as they will step up against hate speech and terrorism.

Disproof

The agreement the article talks about is about creating a database of online terrorist content. The tech giants will continue to use their own rules for filtering out such content, thus the basic restrictions on free speech will stay as they are currently. Furthermore, countering hate speech and terrorist content does not constitute a restriction on the freedom of speech.
