New Anti-Semitic Deluge Floods Twitter in France
Forward – Hundreds of French Twitter users wrote the phrase “a dead Jew” on Twitter after the company removed some anti-Semitic content.
Twitter agreed to pull anti-Semitic materials offline on Oct. 19 after the Union of French Jewish Students threatened legal action. During that week, a hashtag meaning “a good Jew” became the third most popular among French-language Twitter users. Le Monde wrote that the hashtag functioned as the entry to a virtual “contest of anti-Semitic jokes.”
