Terror Victim Family’s Lawsuit: ISIS Rise ‘Would Not Have Been Possible’ Without Twitter

The widow of an American terror victim wants Twitter to answer for the sea of terrorist propaganda and recruitment pitches that flow through the social media network each day.

But the microblogging giant is trying to get Tamara Fields’ lawsuit tossed out of court, arguing their network is protected by free-speech provisions and no one can prove that the propaganda posted on the site contributed to her husband’s murder.

    For those of us who couldn’t give a rats ass, Michael Coren is all excited on Twitter that London has a muslim mayor. Strange, the media is all excited about a muslim mayor, but when a devout Christian is a politician, he is the worst kind of racist.

    • I pay no attention.

    • David Smith

      What kind of person could make such an about face?

        A two-faced one perhaps?

    But Twitter has set up a “Truth and Safety Council”, which shuts
    down twitter accounts– without explanation or appeal– of
    political conservatives like Stacy McCain and Milo Yiannopoulos.
    Politically correct twitter accounts– like that of Azealia Banks, who
    tweeted that Sarah Palin should be gang raped– remain up and
    running. Of course the so-called “Truth and Safety Council” doesn’t
    care what ISIS gets up to on its platform– shutting down and
    shadow blocking accounts is only directed at conservatives.

    I think there’s a good reason Twitter stock has lost over 40% of
    its valuation in the past year, and good riddance.
