Twitter accounts closed for promoting terrorism
Twitter has definitely taken steps to make their network more pc. I think this is a step in the right direction. It began with the banning of people on on the social media site who promoted hate speech, recently towards actress Leslie Jones. I personally agreed with the ban. The occurrence of banning individuals who may be deemed as promoting terror is a sticky situation. What would be used to determine what is acceptable. I think negative tweets should be banned but some sort of guideline should be set up.
Twitter’s latest action brings the total number of accounts that the company has suspended to 360,000 since it began cracking down on terrorism and violent extremism in mid-2015.
