Marie van der Zyl, Vice President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the national representative body of the UK Jewish community, responded to Twitter’s new policy changes, saying:
“We welcome Twitter’s toughening stance on extremism and hatred. Social media presents many emerging opportunities, but many emerging challenges as well. Twitter and other social media companies must be continually mindful about making their platforms safe as they evolve. Today’s announcement is very much a step in the right direction.”
