GERMANY AND FRANCE FORCE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER TO ADDRESS HATE SPEECH

In November, Germany launched yet another, similar investigation...into European head of Facebook Martin Ott, Facebook’s managing director for northern, central and eastern Europe...The prosecution said last month that Ott may be held responsible for his employer’s failure to remove hate speech...

Twitter, for its part, gave up a separate fight to protect racist users in July, agreeing to unmask posters of racist content on its French service when ordered by a Paris court to hand it over.
