UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — Internet and social media companies must step up their monitoring efforts to combat terrorist recruiting online, French President Emmanuel Macron said at a forum at the UN.
"We have to have propaganda here," Macron said on Wednesday. "It's not official propaganda but operators can prepare positive models and imaginary landscapes which are identical with our values."
Google senior vice president and general counsel Kent Walker said four Social media giant corporations, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube were committed to working together to crack down on what he described as "problematic content" online.
Twitter in recent months suspended almost a million accounts for problematic content promoting terrorism and extremism, Walker said.
