A class action lawsuit has been filed in a Berlin court over Twitter’s disregard for anti-Semitic publications. It was sent from HateAid, an organization fighting hate speech, and the European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS), bloomberg writes .

We are talking about six posts that have not been deleted, despite complaints about their anti-Semitic nature. Among them is a post denying the Holocaust. The moderators of the social network rejected the deletion, despite the persecution of its denial by German law.

EUJS President Avital Greenberg believes their trust in Twitter has been violated amid the social network’s spread of hate speech. He stated that “the company does not protect users and especially young Jews.”

Thus, a 2021 report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate notes that out of 137 cases of anti-Semitism on the platform, Twitter reacted only about 11% .

Earlier, a district court in The Hague dismissed a lawsuit against the social network Twitter in the city of Bodegraven-Reuweika. Representatives of the city administration demanded that the social network more actively fight publications about killer sectarians who allegedly operated in the city in the 1980s.
