Default Social notworking giants sign hate speech pact

Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube and Microsoft have signed a pact agreeing with an EU code of conduct to tackle online hate speech within 24 hours in Europe.

You will still be allowed hate speech in the US so the central platform of the Trump campaign is still safe but those who try to copy his strategy in the EU might become a little unstuck.

EU governments have been trying in recent months to get social platforms to crack down on rising online racism following the refugee crisis and terror attacks, with some even threatening action against the companies.

As part of the pledge agreed with the European Commission, the web giants will review the majority of valid requests for removal of illegal hate speech in less than 24 hours and remove or disable access to the content if necessary.
