Parul Srivastava

According to a report, Social media platform Twitter was appreciated by the officials with the Non Profit Simon Wiesethnal Center for cracking down Islamic State’s use for recruitment and propaganda.

The centre’s digital terrorism and hate project gave Twitter B grade in a report card of social networking companies’ efforts to fight online activity by militant groups such as IS.


Islamic State has been using Twitter since a long time to recruit and radicalize new adherents. The Twitter has already faced a lot of criticism for it and the Wiesenthal Center; international Jewish human rights remained one of the toughest critics of Twitter.
