Tamara Fields, an American woman whose husband Lloyd was killed by a Jordanian police captain, is suing Twitter for allowing ISIS to recruit new members, raise money and spread its message on the popular social media network. ISIS claimed responsibility for the November 9th death of her husband, an Army Veteran.
The complaint says that ISIS maintains about 70,000 Twitter accounts with several dedicated to attracting Westerners. The complaint cites the FBI’s note that Twitter is “crowdsourcing terrorism” and “selling murder.”
Twitter founder Biz Stone maintains that one must “take the good with the bad” to have a global platform providing free speech to hundreds of millions of people.
