WEB­SITES PLEDGE TO RE­MOVE TER­ROR CON­TENT

Computer Active (UK) - - News -

Tech gi­ants – in­clud­ing Face­book, Twit­ter and Google – have vowed to do more to re­move ter­ror­ist con­tent on­line fol­low­ing a meet­ing with the G7 na­tions on the Ital­ian is­land of Ischia. Of­fi­cials said the aim was to take down ex­trem­ist con­tent within two hours of it be­ing posted. This was the time limit rec­om­mended by Theresa May in Septem­ber, when she urged tech com­pa­nies to go “fur­ther and faster” to tackle hate­ful pro­pa­ganda on­line.
