French Government Gives Twitter 15 Days To Hand Over Identities Of 'Hate Tweeters'

Update on: French To Censor Twitter For 'Hate Speech'; Demand Twitter's Compliance 1-3-13 "Another precedent is set in the effort toward the global muzzling of the proletariat... They have identified at least three categories that will now be subject to not only censorship, but evidently to criminal prosecution also, as the wording in the statement describes the government-determined offensive remarks as a "commission of...crimes". Apparently, unapproved comments about homosexuality, "scary racism", or so-called anti-semitic remarks may now render the French citizen guilty of the crime of "hate speech", potentially punishable by the courts...To address the situation the French government is moving to full censorship of the Twitter site, and is demanding Twitter's compliance, in essence to either "implement devices" to somehow prevent "such crimes", or at the least, to flag offenders and report them. Orwell would be proud. The program to implement this censoring system begins Monday January 7" [see post]

And three weeks later, they have now made the first big move:
Twitter ordered to identify anti-Semitic tweeters in France

PARIS, Jan 24 (Reuters) - A French court on Thursday [1-24-13] ordered Twitter Inc to help identify the authors of anti-Semitic posts or face fines of 1,000 euros ($1,300) per day, as the social network firm comes under renewed pressure to combat racist and extremist messages...The order, requested by a Jewish student union and rights groups, concerned anti-Semitic material but could open the floodgates to legal pursuit of Twitter users who post a wide range of messages deemed illegal or offensive.

"This is an excellent decision, which we hope will bring an end to the feeling of impunity that fuels the worst excesses," said Stephane Lilti, lawyer for the groups who sought the ruling...The Paris court gave privately-held Twitter, whose general policy is that it does not control content posted on its network, 15 days to hand over data identifying people who have published messages judged anti-Semitic.

The court also ordered Twitter to set up a system in France that helps people draw attention to illegal content. Under French law, people found guilty of inciting racial hatred can be jailed for a year and fined...A rights group involved in the case was quick to point out that the injunction, while limited to a case of anti-Semitic traffic, set a precedent that could also have a wider impact.

"This marks a decisive step forward in the battle against racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic offences on the Internet," the International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism (LICRA) said in a statement.

"Nobody can ignore French law, not even the giants of the American digital economy."

re: "decisive step forward"

"Legal pursuit" of tweeters in France has begun. This is as much about online anonymity as it is about free speech. This action is very telling, most likely a set-up - make your own tweets, complain, push the NWO agenda - everbody identified, everybody controlled via the chill-factor on speaking out or against. 15 days from the 24th puts the Twitter response on or about February 8. Note also that the French government is demanding "a system" to flag "illegal content". That means direct permanent censorship. And no doubt, the 'wider impact' mentioned in the above article will be incrementally implemented globally from this point forward...as the next "decisive step" is taken, then the next, and the next...until the last portal of uncontrolled information - the internet - is completely stomped out and converted into a tool of total control.

They call their new global order the 'new-dawn-rising'. Be fully aware, because when what is now dawning turns fully into the new day, it will be a day of utter darkness. See the light: John 8:12
