Twitter has begun suspending accounts of groups and individuals who are critical of the Islamics.
The accounts of Britain First’s leaders Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen were blocked, preventing the two from posting on the social media site. Britain First’s main account, @BritainFirstHQ, was also pulled down.
The suspensions came on the same day the tech firm started enforcing stricter rules aimed at combating hateful and abusive content. It highlights how Twitter and other social media companies are ramping up their efforts to police offensive content on their sites.
Islamic terror groups applauded Twitter’s actions.
The accounts of Jared Taylor and American Renaissance were also suspended by Monday.
