‘Bout time, I say!
On a day that experienced major cyber attacks around the globe, I thought I should share some hard news of a positive nature.
From Reuters, via the AAF SmartBrief:
“Social media giants Facebook, Google’s YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft said on Monday they were forming a global working group to combine their efforts to remove terrorist content from their platforms.
“Responding to pressure from governments in Europe and the United States after a spate of militant attacks, the companies said they would share technical solutions for removing terrorist content, commission research to inform their counter-speech efforts and work more with counter-terrorism experts.”

Great news I hope… do we know yet how they will define terrorism?
They’ve just begun, it seems, so we’ll have to watch for that.
