Twitter Suspends over 125,000 Accounts:

 (MiddleEastEyeTwitter suspended over 125,000 accounts, most of them linked to the Islamic State (IS) group, as part of a stepped-up effort to eradicate “terrorist content” on the popular messaging platform, it said on Friday.

The accounts frozen since mid-2015 were targeted “for threatening or promoting terrorist acts,” said Twitter, which is under pressure from governments to act but faces a delicate balancing act and is keen not to be seen as censoring free speech.
