Friends, a first amendment discussion…

Friends, a first amendment discussion. To what extent can a person posting something on a U.S. social media while located in the U.S. be sued overseas for libel? There is the 2010 SPEECH Act preventing people from suing someone in the US if it violates his first amendment rights, but I wonder how protected we are.
This is a big deal because it would make U.S. social media a refuge of free-speech (it would be the London of Voltaire’s day).Now, by extension, how protected is someone in London expressing on U.S. social media something potentially libelous towards another London based person.
Please do not stray off-topic here with generalizations and keep security/surveillance matters outside this discussion. Thanks.
