Twitter, Like Facebook, To Remove Posts Denying the Holocaust

Two days after Facebook announced that it would block posts that deny the Holocaust, Twitter decided to do the same. Bloomberg reports: Twitter’s policy doesn’t explicitly state that denying violent events is against the rules, but the spokeswoman confirmed that “attempts to deny or diminish” violent events, including the Holocaust, would be removed based on the company’s interpretation of the policy. “We strongly condemn anti-semitism, and hateful conduct has absolutely no place on our service,” she said in a statement. “We also have a robust ‘glorification of violence’ policy in place and take action against content that glorifies or praises historical acts of violence and genocide, including the Holocaust.”
