Suspends accounts showing beheading

20 Aug, 2014

Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo announces that the platform is “actively suspending” accounts which are tweeting beheading pictures. This is in response to the tweeting of pictures allegedly showing the Islamic State (ISIS) beheading James Foley, an American journalist. Screenshots of the video, which remained on You Tube for four  minutes and 40 seconds, as well as other images were then posted and shared on Twitter.
