Twitter suspended accounts accidentally after abuse of new private media
Twitter has suspended several accounts by mistake after far-right extremists exploited the new private media policy.
The policy allows individuals to request takedowns of photos or videos that contain a user’s image.
Far-right extremists sought to remove pictures of them taken at hate rallies and remove accounts that keep track of white supremacy rallies.
Twitter has faced criticism over the vague language within the new policy, specifically due to the ramifications it could have on journalists and other users who have a legitimate reason for posting images of others online.
The government will aim to provide rehab for 300,000 drug users who carry out half of robbery related crimes in England and Wales.
This 10-year strategy would also tackle 2,000 county lines gangs.
Other measures include using dealers’ seized phones to message clients and discourage drug use, expansion of testing on arrest and giving judges the power to order testing on those serving community sentences.
This strategy is due to published in full later today.
