48 Hour Twitter Walk Out
If you're on Twitter, you may be aware of their lax policy toward antisemitism. While they clamp down on any other type of bigotry, Jews are left to fend for ourselves.
With that in mind, there is a 48 hour Twitter Walk Out.
From NBC News:
Celebrities, politicians and other high profile Brits have pledged to join a 48-hour "walkout" from Twitter to protest what they say is an inadequate response to anti-Semitic tweets from a rapper.
Wiley — who is considered a key figure in London’s grime music scene — is facing a police investigation after a string of anti-Semitic comments appeared on his social media accounts last week.
The 41-year-old rapper, whose real name is Richard Cowie, has nearly half a million followers on his Twitter account, which is currently suspended.
Some of his statements have been deleted by the social media giant for violating its "hateful conduct policy." But others remain, drawing criticism from other users of the platform.
As a result, singer Jessie Ware, Doctor Who star Tracy-Ann Oberman and a host of other soap stars, actors, academics and politicians have all pledged to boycott Twitter for 48 hours, starting on Monday morning.
Ignore Twitter Monday and Tuesday.
Will it make a difference?
We'll find out if enough people participate.
