The microblogging service Twitter has suspended the account of the al Qaeda-linked Somali militia known as al Shabab.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center — a Los Angeles-based nonprofit group that monitors use of the Internet and social networking by terrorists and hate groups — plans to put Twitter on the cover page of its annual report, to be published in March, the center's associate dean, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, said Monday.
"It's a shame if it takes lawsuits and pressure from governments like Germany and France to make Twitter do the right thing," he said. "They should have been on top of this a long time ago. It's not a theoretical issue about freedom of speech. It's a life-and-death issue about terrorism. It's no secret Twitter is used by terrorists for command and control."
