Twitter Will Continue Providing Material Support to Hamas

This issue has been raised in the past.

It’s especially relevant after Twitter went after some accounts critical of Islamic terror, including ex-Muslim cartoonist Bosch Fawstin, and an Israeli diplomat in Brazil, but continues to host Hamas.

Now Ashley Rae Goldenberg at MRC has somewhat of an answer from Twitter.

While the Twitter spokesperson said she could not comment on specific accounts, the spokesperson directed the Media Research Center to this specific passage of the rules against violent extremist groups:

Exceptions will be considered for groups that have reformed or are currently engaging in a peaceful resolution process, as well as groups with representatives elected to public office through democratic elections.

The exemption goes on to claim that the policy also “does not apply to military or government entities.”

That last part would have covered ISIS.

Hamas is not the only terrorist group active on Twitter.
