Well well well, Twitter f i n a l l y decided to do the right thing after months and months of being badgered. I am surprised that the Feds have not interceded - glad that they finally grew some aair on their hasses though!

So the IsIs POS's will most likely continue to communicate on FB and other social media sites-

Kind of makes me wonder how many of these are actually in the U.S.





[EX] They were suspended, the social media network said, after threatening or promoting terrorist acts related to ISIS.

"Like most people around the world, we are horrified by the atrocities perpetrated by extremist groups. We condemn the use of Twitter to promote terrorism and the Twitter Rules make it clear that this type of behavior, or any violent threat, is not permitted on our service," the network said in a blog post on Friday.

This disclosure is significant as it marks the first time that Twitter has made these suspensions public and appears to be a response to pressure from the White House as well as the French, Australian and British governments. It is also the most prominent and significant action by a technology firm since Obama administration cabinet officials flew across the country last month to ask Silicon Valley for help. [/EX]

The problem is, more and more people are being labeled terrorists, so where will it end? In the uk even school children have been arrested using terrorism laws!
Censorship should not be allowed, ever!

Great post. The disabled accounts were chosen by computer algorithms programmed by very fallible and most times vague humans.

As soon as one is closed down, then off they go and set a new one up. I have it on very good authority that Jihadist recruiters do not use the likes of Twitter and Facebok, that's far too adult.

They target social networks aimed at younger people, most of which I had never heard of until being enlightened.

But, it's not just Islamic radicalisation, the National parties are beginning to gain much more support. Young white kids are in danger of being radicalised by the Right.

We're all being played, divide and conquer at it's very finest.

So being a nationalist or right wing makes you a radical extremist like an ISIS member?

BS.

Is there anything you base this claim on or did you just make that up.

I dont believe he did make it up.
Some of us have the capability of searching other parts of the net and get a wider
view of the scenario.

There is only one scam and that is government.

Then why don't you come up with an example that shows how right wingers or nationalists are radicalised up to the point where you can even remotely compare them to islamic extremists like ISIS.

I am much more concerned about those screwing up and keeping the US economy down then some religion fanatics in the middle east. I know which one is the bigger threat to me and mine.

To be honest. Twitter is stupid. They should suspend ALL of the twitter accounts.

Twitter is like a post office. It isn't the post office's job to make sure you're letters are not terrorism related. Since ISIS means different things to different people, simply saying something like "I like ISIS" isn't enough to move against someone. If they specifically advocate violence then that is when you suspend their account.

Since you say you benefit from these accounts being suspended, but Twitter may not feel a benefit, then its actually on you to pay Twitter to do all this monitoring of accounts. That costs a lot of money, and Twitter is a free service. Basically if you think they should have to play police, then you need to pay them to do that.

So in theory yes, suspend some of those ISIS accounts, but people like you who are bothered by such things should have to pay for that, whereas people who are not bothered because they know their threat from ISIS is exactly zero (because they don't have a brain that allows propaganda to work on them) should not have to pay for that.

I was actualyy going to give you an example of what these 3rd world medieval backwards tards,
that hold human value as much as 2 camels are like.

I would tell you how many times in the last ten years I have walked home at 2am on a hot summers night
with a union jack t shirt and been cursed in my face saying # england.

But you dont want to hear about that do you?.

Quite a lot of people in fact.

www.cbsnews.com...


In the last quarter of 2013, Twitter said that it had 241 million active users, defined as people who logged in at least once a month.

Just because you think it stupid doesn't make it so. Twitter can show valuable real-time information news networks may take hours to broadcast. Recently in southwest Western Australia we had terrible bushfires, and Twitter was an excellent way to keep up to date, especially before the news networks were even aware of the fires.

Trouble with Twitter, is you have to pay attention to who is Twittering.
It can be a hornets nest of hoaxes.

I will agree however, that proper and known ID's have reported some remarkable real-time events before the MSM latched on.

There have been a number of attacks on Asians in the U.K by individuals who have been radicalised by Right Wing ideology. But in Europe the most infamous is obviously Anders Brievik.

As I said in my initial post, radicalisation is happening at both ends of the spectrum and this is caused by Government foreign policy and the MSM.

It's all part of the master plan, but you can continue to live in denial if it it makes you feel better about life.

BS, you said children were being radicalised by nationlists and right wingers. Vague references to a few assaults here and there and to the Breivik case which happened years ago is not proof of such a widespread current trend like you claim.

There is growing support for the national front too, which if you go to their wiki page is a racist group. No doubt about it. en.m.wikipedia.org...(UK)



The National Front (NF) is a British far-right political party for whites only,[5] opposed to non-white immigration, and committed to a programme of repatriation. While denying accusations of fascism, it has cultivated links with neo-Nazi cells at home and abroad, and the Briti
