Anti-Semitic tweets in twitter invites legal action

A main Jewish Students Union (UEJF) in France has initiated legal action against Twitter to compel the site to disclose the details of people who posted a bulk of anti-Semitic hatred messages. A hearing is scheduled in a Paris Court for January 8, attorney Stephane Liltie said. She also stated that the group also sought the application of French laws on unlawful content.

In October, UEJF said it had compelled twitter to make a note of many offending tweets that had flooded the site frequently.

Twitter’s response summarizes that it cannot remove tweets but allow the suspension of accounts creating content violating its rules or illegitimate. The site officials also declared that it would not give away the details of the account holders unless it’s ruled by a judge.
