Hold Twitter to account

Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei, who continues to call for the genocide of Israel, incite violence against Americans and deny the Holocaust, still has an account.

So do the various commissars of the Chinese Communist Party, which uses Twitter to systematically spread COVID-19 misinformation and justify its genocide of Uyghur Muslims.

Ditto the Russian regime of Vladimir Putin, who has a penchant for poisoning opposition leaders and threatening them online.

Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro both roam freely on the social platform.

Simply put, Twitter cannot claim it is committed to tackling hate and violence while it continues to provide an unfiltered platform to the Iranian leader and a who’s-who of the world’s worst human rights abusers and terror abettors.
