Microsoft threatens to block alt-right Twitter over neo-Nazi's posts

Source: The Hill

Microsoft Azure, a cloud computing service, is threatening to ban Gab, a social media alternative to Twitter that is popular with the alt-right.

Gab said in a tweet Thursday that Microsoft ordered it to take down a pair of anti-semitic messages written by Patrick Little, a neo-Nazi running for Senate in California. The company gave Gab two days to comply.

If Gab doesn’t take down the posts, Azure also said it will suspend its cloud services for the microblogging site, effectively taking it down, according to an email shared on Gab’s Twitter.

Little’s posts advocated for physically harming Jews. In one post, Little said he would livestream himself destroying a unspecified Holocaust memorial in the U.S.
