One social media giant is trying to tamp down the terrorism talk.
Twitter has responded to calls for policing its site by carrying out a campaign to suspend accounts that promote terrorism. Between 2015 and last year, the micro-blogging site has taken down 1.21 million accounts.
The company’s transparency report noted that over 274 thousand were removed in the last half of 2017, which means there was a slowdown in terrorism talk on Twitter to the tune of 8.4-percent less.
They’re getting a handle on it, as 74-percent of the latest batch were reoved before they sent out on tweet.Source: Los Angeles Times
