Tech companies continue efforts to banish extremist accounts

Apple is giving $1 million apiece to Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The iPhone maker also will match employee donations to those two groups and other human rights organizations on a two-for-one basis.

Tech companies’ efforts to banish extremist groups and individuals are continuing as a social network popular with extremists disappeared from Google’s Android app store.

Gab had already been unavailable in Apple’s store, though it remains accessible on the web.

That sounds like a threat, or at the very least a call for action. Step 1 accomplished: Identify the enemy, and we can thank Trump for flushing them out.
