Twitter announced on Wednesday an update to its policy against hateful conduct with which it will eliminate publications that “deny” or “minimize” the Holocaust, days after Facebook’s announcement that it will also ban this type of content.

So far, the policy of Twitter does not explicitly stipulate that denying violent acts or events is against the rules, but according to a company spokeswoman “attempts to deny or minimize” events of violence, including the Holocaust, will be eliminated from now on.

“We strongly condemn anti-Semitism and behavior that incites hatred have no place in our service,” the spokeswoman has assured, as reported by the US agency Bloomberg.

He has also highlighted that they have “a strong policy against ‘exaltation of violence’ and we take action against content that praises or praises historic acts of violence and genocide, including the Holocaust. “

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the company will veto all content that “denies” or “distorts” the Holocaust, after a study revealed that the algorithm used by the company allegedly favors denialism.

Zuckerberg, who said in a statement to find “between a rock and a hard place”He added that he had fought a battle between “defending freedom of expression and dealing with the harm caused by minimizing or denying the horror of the Holocaust.” Ultimately, this decision was motivated by the rise of anti-Sememitism worldwide.

A recent survey of 18- to 39-year-olds in the United States reveals that nearly a quarter of respondents say they believe the Holocaust is a myth or has been exaggerated.
