Facebook, Google, Twitter agree to delete hate speech in 24 hours: Ger

Posted by @DanHinmon, Dec 18, 2015

Germany is having a very public argument with Facebook, Twitter and Google re: rising online racism following the refugee crisis.

“When the limits of free speech are trespassed, when it is about criminal expressions, sedition, incitement to carry out criminal offences that threaten people, such content has to be deleted from the net,” German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said.

A Facebook spokesperson said the allegations lack merit and there has been no violation of German law by Facebook or its employees.
