Twitter will soon ban posts that deny the Holocaust a company spokesperson confirmed today the news, first reported by Bloomberg.
In this statement the Twitter spokesperson said: “We strongly condemn antisemitism, and hateful conduct has absolutely no place on our service. They said that attempts to deny or diminish violent events are prohibited under Twitter’s hateful conduct policy. Glorification of violent events, including the Holocaust, is banned, too.”
The ban is not listed on Twitter’s website describing its hateful conduct policy.
However, the ban is said to reflect Twitter’s internal interpretation of how the policy is meant to be applied. That interpretation is not new, the spokesperson said, though they didn’t state how long the policy has been in place.
