The Israeli activist legal group Shurat HaDin has sent a letter to Twitter threatening legal action unless the site stops hosting Hezbollah Twitter accounts, and accounts for other terrorist organisations.
NAIROBI, Kenya — The United States government is increasingly concerned about the Twitter account of the Shabab militant group of Somalia, with American officials saying Monday that they were “looking closely” at the militants’ use of Twitter and the possible measures to take in response.
American officials would not disclose what action they were considering. But some American officials said the government was exploring legal options to shut down the Shabab’s new Twitter account, potentially opening a debate over the line between free speech and support for terrorism.
