Shurat HaDin warns Twitter

Labels: »
twitter eats it Pictures, Images and Photosthis has been going on since the start of twitter... and yet the so called early adopters of twitter in tech felt that an account called @NoahDavidSimon and around 25 other accounts I created after being disabled was more dangerous then these accounts. I am again reminded of the situation where I was forced to create Panopticons to surveillance these profiles if blocked. Eventually the hostility form the early twitter community led to my arrest and extradition to Washington State... and yet somehow terrorist accounts were overlooked. It is questionable why any law enforcement agency would arrest someone and call someone a stalker for using public feeds, but it did happen. The drawing above was done during this period in my life. I was arrested for what had been done to protect myself on twitter from a very hostile element that was organized against Jewish activists. I was also censored. (REDRAW)
(Carl) Israeli-based Shurat HaDin has warned Twitter that it could face possible legal action if it continues to allow designated terrorist groups to hold accounts.
The Law Center has sent a letter to Twitter CEO Richard Costolo, warning that the company could fall foul of strict US anti-terror legislation by providing social media services to organizations designated as terrorist groups under US law.
Over 7,700 people follow Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar TV's Twitter account. Al-Manar tweets links back to its Arabic language news site, which features articles condemning the 'Zionist Enemy Entity' alongside a photo gallery of Hezbollah 'martyrs' and a video library of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah's speeches.
Somali-based Al-Shabaab, which tweets in English under the username HSM Press Office, has over 7,200 Twitter followers. Its user profile explains that al-Shabaab is 'part of the global struggle towards the revival of the Islamic Khilaafa [Caliphate.]'
Both Hezbollah and al-Shabaab have been designated foreign terrorist organizations by the US government, and al-Manar TV is listed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity.
Law Center Director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner said that by permitting al-Shabaab and Hezbollah to run accounts, Twitter is violating US anti-terror laws, and cites a recent ruling by the US Supreme Court, which found that providing any assistance or support to terrorists is illegal.
