Twitter is permitting terrorist leaders from the Taliban to continue using the platform as long as they obey the rules.
Mediaite first obtained Twitter’s announcement, reporting “Asked on Tuesday whether Twitter would join Facebook, TikTok and other tech companies in banning the terror group, a spokesman for the company sidestepped the question, saying in a statement it would ‘continue to proactively enforce’ its rules on the ‘glorification of violence, platform manipulation and spam.’”
As of August 19th, Taliban leaders remain active on Twitter. “The statement also took a moment to sell the company as a communication platform, saying it was ‘witnessing people in the country using Twitter to seek help and assistance.’” Twitter claimed its “top priority is keeping people safe,” however it supports known terrorists.
Users are criticizing the platform for banning former President Donald Trump while accepting terrorist organizations. “Why on God’s green Earth does the Taliban spokesman have an active Twitter account but not the former President of the United States?,” Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) Tweeted. “Who’s side is the AMERICA BASED Big-Tech companies on?”
