Twitter to Remove French Anti-Semitic Tweets

Social media giant decided to apply French law


Twitter has agreed to remove French-language anti-Semitic messages that have flooded the micro-blogging site in recent days, after threats of legal action, a Jewish student union said Friday.

The US firm agreed to apply French law and remove offensive messages it is alerted to, said a lawyer for the UEJF union. Such tweets have been proliferating in France in recent days with the hashtag #unbonjuif (#AGoodJew).
