Twitter Suspends White Nationalist Accounts in Attempt to Address Offensive Content
(Time Magazine, 18/12/2017)

Twitter suspended the accounts of well-known white nationalists Monday, moving swiftly after putting into place new rules on what it sees as abusive content.

The account of far-right group Britain First, a small group that regularly posts inflammatory videos purporting to show Muslims engaged in acts of violence, was among the first to go dark. The individual accounts of two of its leaders, Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding, were also suspended.

President Donald Trump caused a stir last month when he retweeted a post by Fransen, drawing criticism from British Prime Minister Theresa May. Fransen and Golding were arrested in Belfast last week for allegedly stirring up hatred.

Twitter suspends Britain First leaders as it enforces new anti-abuse rules

Twitter has suspended the accounts of the leader and deputy leader of Britain First, a far-right group recently retweeted by Donald Trump, under the terms of its revised anti-abuse rules.

Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen’s accounts were unavailable on Monday afternoon hours after the social network’s new rules came into effect. The organisation’s main account was also suspended.

Fransen came to global attention when Trump retweeted anti-Islam videos she had posted in November. She was in court in Belfast last week on two charges relating to behaviour intended to or likely to stir up hatred and was rearrested outside the court for a separate incident. Golding was also arrested outside the courtroom.
