Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) Fighting Pro Islamic State Accounts

  • Twitter is becoming less effective as a platform for so-called Islamic State (IS) terrorists, due to the rapid take-down rate of pro-IS accounts from the site, researchers at Dublin City University (DCU) have found.
  • A study conducted as part of the VOX-Pol project, with the University of Sussex, found that IS accounts faced “substantial and aggressive disruption” with over 65 per cent of the analysed accounts suspended within 70 days of their establishment.
  • Twitter and other social media platforms such as YouTube have been increasing their use of artificial intelligence to identify such content and to remove it rapidly.
