Twitter sued by UJFS over anti-Semitic tweet data


Several anti-racism groups including the student union noticed the tweets and requested Twitter to remove all of them. Without hesitation these were removed but then another demand was sent to Twitter. In France anti-hate speech laws are strongly enforced.

UEJF wanted to know the identities of all users that sent such anti-Semitic tweets so that they can further pursue them in the court of law.

In January a French court rules that Twitter must comply with UEJF demands. However Twitter did not wish to take a decision sooner than the 15 days deadline it was offered. UEJF sued Twitter again, this time asking for $50M. According to the president of the Union of Jewish French Students “Twitter is playing the indifference card and does not respect the ruling.”
