Twitter Steps Up Efforts to Thwart Terrorists’ Tweets

For years, Twitter has positioned itself as a “global town square” that is open to discourse from all. And for years, extremist groups like the Islamic State have taken advantage of that stance, using Twitter as a place to spread their messages.

Twitter on Friday made clear that it was stepping up its fight to stem that tide. The social media company said it had suspended 125,000 Twitter accounts associated with extremism since the middle of 2015, the first time it has publicized the number of accounts it has suspended. Twitter also said it had expanded the teams that review reports of accounts connected to extremism, to remove the accounts more quickly.

“As the nature of the terrorist threat has changed, so has our ongoing work in this area,” Twitter said in a statement, adding that it “condemns the use of Twitter to promote terrorism.” The company said its collective moves had already produced results, “including an increase in account suspensions and this type of activity shifting off Twitter.” The disclosure follows intensifying pressure on Twitter and other technology companies from the White House….

Wake up people here it is our government taking control. I’m not saying it’s wrong to fight off terrorism by using social media platforms it is unacceptable for evil men to wipe out people from the face of the earth do to their beliefs.  But this fight on terrorism is stepping out of line that it invades our freedom of speech in which is very disturbing. The subtle word we must look into is extremism the word extremism means a tendency or disposition to go to extremes or an instance of going to extremes, especially in political matters. This word that our governments uses to define terrorism is broad because its just not talking about Islamic terrorism but other groups that classify as a threat to civilization including Christian groups. If you don’t believe me notice this quote. “The SPLC says it places groups — including conservative, Christian groups — on its “Hate List” based on their beliefs, not their propensity for violence. “Homegrown violent extremists can be motivated by any viewpoint on the full spectrum of hate — anti-government views, racism, bigotry, anarchy and other despicable beliefs,” Carlin told a gathering at George Washington University. The discussion was co-hosted by SPLC. “When it comes to hate and intolerance, no single ideology governs.”Freedom of speech is now under assault in the name of fighting terrorism and extremism as it is maturing in the U.S. and the world “Non-violent extremism” could eventually expand and cross over to take in those that believe and teach the Bible, particularly as it relates to Revelation 13,14:6-12, Rev 17 and Revelation 18:1-4 in which exposes the Papacy. A year ago Popes Francis has deemed Christians who believe strictly to the Bible teaching as fundamentalist. Now the word today we associate it with terrorism but the original definition for fundamentalist meant Christians who believed in the Bible truth and believed the literal second coming of Jesus Christ and keepers of the commandments of God.
