Twitter Death Threat

Twitter makes a big deal about death threats by tweet on their platform, and rightly so.  So why haven’t they removed this tweet:

 


Please notify twitter by flagging the tweet as ‘death threat’.

I’ve also notified the following people who this guys supports, but so far they have not responded to me.

  • reclaimthenet@gmail.com – http://www.reclaimtheinternet.com/
  • mail@antisemitism.org.uk – http://antisemitism.org.uk/
  • https://twitter.com/SussexFriends

In what universe is this fatwah acceptable? I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone here.  What bothers me is not so much that Twitter won’t remove it, but that the ‘respectable’ people that this guy would listen to are silent.  Speak up!

“The world is too dangerous to live in – not because of the people who do evil, but because of the people who sit and let it happen.”

I will update this post if any changes.

  1. After contacting all these groups and getting no response, I then went to my Jewish Federation and asked them for help. They dismissed my pleas and said it’s not their problem. They are now pushing the anti-Semitism / bomb threat / security hysteria which ironically (or expectedly) JVP is exposing with their excellent recent video – Deadly Exchange: http://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium-1.802557

  2. I actually don’t think they should remove the tweet. Instead, keep it up so people can see and roundly condemn. Far more effective in preventing escalation to violence and war.
