FRANCE: Twitter To Hand Over Info On Senders Of Homophobic Tweets

Twitter has agreed to submit to a court order requiring them to deliver information on users who send tweet that violate France’s laws on hate speech. Pink News reports:

The Union of Jewish Students of France (UEJF), made a complaint in April pushing the public Prosecutor of Paris to take action to ensure that the information was handed over by Twitter. Twitter said handing over the information would “allow the identification of some authors” of the abusive tweets to French courts. Both Twitter and the UEJF “actively continue to fight” against abusive and discriminatory messages, “in compliance with their respective national legislation”.
