Conference of Presidents Commends Twitter's Rejection of Holocaust Denial

New York, NY

. . . Arthur Stark, Chairman, William Daroff, CEO, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

"We thank Twitter for its decision to remove content that denies the reality of the Holocaust, as well as its unequivocal denunciation of antisemitism and hateful conduct.

Coming days after a similar move by Facebook, this development is an encouraging sign of progress in the increasingly urgent fight against Jew-hatred that is on the rise at home and abroad.

Social media platforms can and should be a force for good, and these new policies demonstrate that there can be a balance between freedom of speech and rejection of hate. We hope to see more platforms follow suit in the days ahead."
