Twitter gives neo-Nazis, racists Dec. 18 deadline—and could then kick them out entirely | #SocialMedia #NOHateSpeech 

Twitter gives neo-Nazis, racists Dec. 18 deadline—and could then kick them out entirely | #SocialMedia #NOHateSpeech  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter is cracking down on hate speech and not just by looking at its own site. 

In what amounts to a major shift in Twitter policy, the company announced on Friday that it will be monitoring user's behavior "on and off the platform" and will suspend a user's account if they affiliate with violent organizations, according to an update to Twitter's Help Center on Friday. 

"You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes," the update reads.

Twitter isn't taking action immediately. Rather, it's given users until December 18, 2017 when it will then begin enforcing the rule. The month-long wait is due to regulations in the European Union that require companies to inform users of a new policy change 30 days prior to enforcement.

The Dec. 18 deadline also applies to using "hateful images or symbols" in profile images or profile headers. Twitter will also monitor for hate speech in usernames, display names, and profile bios.

Twitter sued for $50 million for refusing to reveal anti-semites

Twitter sued for $50 million for refusing to reveal anti-semites | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
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.
