Twitter sued for $50 million for refusing to reveal anti-semites | Social Media and its influence |
Cites First Amendment, lack of jurisdiction in its refusal.


In January, a French court ruled that Twitter must hand over the details of people who had tweeted racist and anti-semitic remarks, and set up a system that would alert the police to any further such posts as they happen. Twitter has ignored that ruling, and now the Union of French Jewish Students (UEJF) is suing it for €38.5 million ($49.96 million) for its failure.
