Twitter suspends 125,000 accounts for terrorism links

Twitter said the more than 125,000 accounts had been frozen since mid-2015. The move comes after pressure from governments, especially after the November attacks in Paris and December attacks in southern California, which were linked to IS. The site had been urged to take more steps to control IS’ and similar groups’ efforts to recruit new members and to plan violent acts.

  • Very laudable action on the part of Twitter. But we all know where this will lead — the actions of the fascist Left are as predictable as the law of gravity. After they get rid of a “nominal” amount of pro-ISIS accounts to impress everyone, they’ll focus on the “real” problem — people who speak out against the bloody Jihad. Because that’s the way it always happens.

    Twitter, Facebook and other interactive electronic media sites need to be constantly monitored. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.
