Twitter and Facebook Vow to Eliminate 'Hate Speech'
Could it soon be illegal to oppose jihad terror on the Internet?
AP reported that "the European Union reached an agreement Tuesday with some of the world's biggest social media firms, including Facebook and Twitter, on ways to combat the spread of hate speech online."
Not only Facebook and Twitter, but also YouTube and Microsoft, "have committed to 'quickly and efficiently' tackle illegal hate speech directed against anyone over issues of race, color, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin. The sites have often been used by terrorist organizations to relay messages and entice hatred against certain individuals or groups."
