France’s Union of Jewish Students (UEJF) alerted Twitter to racist messages that were Tweeted through their service and asked that they be removed.
The social media giant acquiesced to their requests and thought that the matter had been tactfully resolved, but when the UEJF and four other anti-racist groups asked for identifiable details of those sending the racist messages, Twitter declined.
The organizations then took Twitter to court in March and sued them for $50 million for their refusal. The lawsuit helped Twitter’s little blue bird sing like a canary and give up the identities.
