A woman residing in Florida filed lawsuit against famous micro blogging site twitter for her husband’s death. Actually twitter has any direct hand in Tamara Fields husband’s death, She is accusing the firm for supporting the global spread of IS (Islamic State) around the world.
Tamara Fields husband was killed in a lone wolf terrorist attack in Amman, Jordan, in November last year. According to her lawsuit “Without Twitter the explosive growth of IS over the last few years into the most-feared terrorist group in the world would not have been possible.”
An unnamed Twitter representative responded to this lawsuit that “While we believe the lawsuit is without merit, we are deeply saddened to hear of this family’s terrible loss. Like people around the world, we are horrified by the atrocities perpetrated by extremist groups and their ripple effects on the Internet. Violent threats and the promotion of terrorism deserve no place on Twitter and, like other social networks, our rules make that clear. We have teams around the world actively investigating reports of rule violations, identifying violating conduct, partnering with organizations countering extremist content online, and working with law enforcement entities when appropriate.”
