Texas Republican proposes to ban minors from social media

Texas Republican State Rep. Jared Patterson has introduced HB 896 which would require social media users to be at least 18-years old in order to open a social media account.

Once approved, the bill would force social media companies to verify a user’s age with a photo ID while also allowing parents to request their child’s accounts be removed from the sites.

Wouldn’t it be better to make social media users undergo IQ-tests and logic problems? It is not the age that matters.
