Twitter will remove tweets that deny the Holocaust
Publications that deny the Holocaust will be taken down. According to a Twitter spokesperson, this type of content violates the platform’s anti-hate policy, which aims to combat behaviors that refer to “violent events or types of violence in which the protected categories were the main victims, or attempts to deny or diminish such events ”.
“We strongly condemn anti-Semitism and odious conduct has absolutely no place in our service,” Engadget. “We also have a robust ‘glorification of violence’ policy in place and we act against content that glorifies or praises historic acts of violence and genocide, including the Holocaust.”
Twitter is still working on other initiatives to counter the spread of hatred and misinformation on the social network. This is the case of Birdwatch, a resource revealed in early October to combat fake news. Twitter also intends to ask everyone to read articles before sharing.
Facebook also announced on Monday (12) a ban on posts that deny the Holocaust event due to increased anti-Semitism around the world, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust.
