After a troubling past, Twitter seems to have taken up a completely different stand on its policies and regulations. The suspension of accounts belonging to Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen has been followed by much speculation. It was in the previous week when U.S President Donald Trump moved ahead to share a number of tweets posted by Fransen on his personal account.
Earlier on, British MPs belonging to the Home Affairs Committee engaged in a series of discussions that were targeted at establishing the impact of social media whenever it got to that point of influencing hate crime.
It was on Monday that the posts as well as the accounts the group came up with were deleted. The social media giant, now more than ever is committed to updating the policies governing its platform. It hopes that soon it will be able to do a commendable job in line with combating hateful conduct and abuse on the diverse platform.
The retweeting of three anti-Muslim tweets led to the American leader being slammed by the company. Quite a significant number of people to this point can’t comprehend how that happened. That is considering the way the social media company has always defended Trump every time he does something extreme on the platform. In a number of instances it defended him outlining that he tweeted on matters of public interest.
The British Prime Minister Theresa May opined, “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people.”
A recent tweet shared by Trump showed a Dutch teenager being assaulted by a Muslim migrant .It has caused a lot of fire on the platform, but not anymore after some trusted sources came out to dismiss them citing that they were false.
Fransen and Golding’s have gone down records as the first ones to be eliminated by the social media guru from the moment it resolved to employ platform’s updated policy. Twitter’s spokesperson has said that stern measures will be taken against all those found to be in violation of the updated policies.
