Jayda Fransen: Twitter suspends Britain First leader retweeted by Donald Trump

In addition to Golding and Fransen, the BBC reports that American Nazi Party, the Traditionalist Working Party and other neo-Nazi or alt-right accounts have been suspended for failing to comply with Twitter's new policy.

Violence: You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people.

The accounts of two of its leaders have been suspended as has the group's official page. Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity - both on and off the platform - that promotes violence.

The new rules were a response to years of outrage over Twitter allowing hate to flourish on its site.

So far, Twitter appears to be actively enforcing this clause.

Muslim Advocates, which also sits on Twitter's Trust and Safety Council, told the company in a letter that Britain First was trying to "perpetuate and fuel hatred and fear of Muslims". Before taking that step, Twitter will make requests for that user to remove the offending content. Twitter will also crack down on users who are known to participate in groups that promote violence outside of their actions on the site.

"It's not surprising, of course", she continued. Many prominent white nationalist Twitter accounts remained active, including those belonging to Richard Spencer, Mike Peinovich (aka Mike Enoch), Elliot Kline (aka Eli Mosley), Evan McLaren, James Allsup, Nathan Damigo, Nicholas Fuentes, David Duke and Jason Kessler.

Though Lawler put forth a valiant effort, dos Anjos dominated the well-traveled veteran for the duration of five rounds. He beat Demian Maia, but he looked really bad when he fought Demian, and I have no comments on that guy". "I hope so.

The suspensions are part of Twitter attempt to better combat hate-speech and abuse on its platform.

In its mission statement, Britain First describes itself as "a patriotic resistance and "frontline" for our long suffering people" that will "restore Christianity as the bedrock" of national life and put British workers first.

Hate imagery will now fall under the rubric of Twitter's "sensitive media policy", and that will include any "logos, symbols, or images whose goal is to promote hostility and malice against others based on their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin".

Although some users documented the suspended accounts using #TwitterPurge, others pointed out that many accounts bearing Nazi signifiers remained on the site.

According to the new rules enforced by Twitter, "violent extremist groups will be banned from having accounts".

"We'll evaluate and iterate on these changes in the coming days and weeks, and will keep you posted on progress along the way".
