Twitter administrators on Monday began suspending or closing social media accounts they deemed to be hateful, threatening or glorifying violence, among them the accounts of prominent white nationalists who are calling the move a "purge" and attack on free speech. The videos were titled, "Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!" and "Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!"
Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May, publically condemned Trump's retweets and called Britain First an organization that tells "hate-filled narratives to peddle lies and stoke tensions". "They cause anxiety to law-abiding people".
Trump responded to May on Twitter. "We are doing just fine!" "Oh but you're the good guys... right?", wrote the account Kekistan MoD, which also posted an image of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey doctored to look like a Soviet leader, complete with the hammer and sickle.
The suspensions are part of Twitter attempt to better combat hate-speech and abuse on its platform. Monday was the deadline to comply with the new policy.
In particular, the new rules ban violent threats or even "wishing for serious physical harm".
It added: "Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity - both on and off the platform - that promotes violence".
Instead of relying on the content of tweets alone, Twitter announced Monday, the company will now take into account what a person's profile contains - whether they're associated with any known hate groups or espouse ideology that violates Twitter's terms and conditions, such as white supremacy or vocal support of terrorist groups.
But Twitter said it would not cut off accounts for military or government entities, and would consider exceptions "for groups that are now engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution". The videos depict men committing violent acts, with captions alleging those men are Muslim.
The tech giant is developing unspecified "internal tools" to help identify accounts in violation in order to supplement reports from users.
Hateful imagery, such as swastikas and other symbols, will be hidden behind a content warning in tweets that allows users the option of viewing it.
Hate imagery will now fall under the rubric of Twitter's "sensitive media policy", and that will include any "logos, symbols, or images whose objective is to promote hostility and malice against others based on their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin". Twitter says if these images appear in the header or profile images, it will require account owners to remove them.
