Social media giants are now forced by the European Union (EU) to remove 'hate speech' online.
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (Google) and Microsoft have signed an agreement with the EU to remove hate speech on social media, reports Hegnar.
According to the new guidelines, the companies should try to consider requests to remove hate speech within a day.
Several European governments have in recent months tried to get social media to crack down on 'racism' in the wake of the refugee crisis, and Germany has even forced Facebook to set up a special German "Task Force" of left-wing moderators to remove posts and comments - thus users - that they find inappropriate and damaging to Merkel's and the EU's increasingly obvious agenda.
Removal of hate speech is also important because terrorist groups are using social media to radicalize young people, says EU's Justice Commissioner, Věra Jourová.
However, if many conservative posts that are critical of the invasion of Europe now are removed from these sites, inevitable new social media sites will emerge, and then Facebook and Twitter will be left with people who only share cat photos and American Idol videos.
Freedom of speech and expression will not be halted unless it's allowed to.
