Interesting Anti-Semitic Twitter Tweet After pressure from the French group

Apparently, this week sensor on Twitter.

Earlier this week, we told you that Twitter is under fire from the French anti-discrimination group in a series of bad tweets from a particular hashtag. The groups accuse Twitter allows an “anti-Semitic joke the competition” that exists on the site, after some users using the hashtag # tweet unbonjuif inflammatory images and messages about the Holocaust.

# Unbonjuif translates into “good Jews” in English. Groups threatened legal action if Twitter allows tweets to remain outstanding.

Now, Twitter follows, removing the offending tweets related to the hashtag. Furthermore, anti-Muslim hashtag is also part of the deletion.

“Twitter does not mediate content. If we do not know the content that may violate our terms of service, we investigate every report and respond in accordance with the policies and procedures outlined on our support, “Twitter said in a statement ap.

Twitter made the term we are giving them the right to delete content that you see fit to remove them and to meet the demands of government.

“We reserve the right at all times (but not the obligation) to remove or refuse to distribute any content on the Service, suspend or terminate the user, and to reclaim the username without any obligation to you. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce the Terms , including investigation of potential violations of the agreement, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address these issues in fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to requests for support for the user, or ( v) protect the rights, property or safety of Twitter, its users and the public “

Twitter rules also state that users “will not be able to use our services for illegal purposes or in furtherance of illegal activity. International users agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and apply acceptable content. ‘

However, unlikely that supporters of free speech and many Twitter users are happy about the removal of tweets as they are “offensive.”, French law prohibits any kind of discrimination based on race , religion, etc..

Decision is a bit different from the other to make the examiner tweet this week. Yesterday, Twitter decided to block the neo-Nazi German accounts – and in Germany alone. That means that the account is still available to all people in the world. It marked the first time that Twitter is called the right to censor local content, surrendered their rights back in January of this year. In the case of French tweets, they are removed from the network together.
