Enterprise collaboration platform Slack, recently posted a brief message to its site, announcing it removed almost thirty accounts over hate group affiliations.
Slack Removes 28 Accounts with Hate Group Affiliations
Other digital services have taken like action over the past several months, including Facebook, Google, GoDaddy, GoFundMe, Reddit, Uber, Discord, and YouTube.
Mostly, these are efforts to organize individuals who will later attend protests and rallies. Here’s the post:
“Today we removed 28 accounts because of their clear affiliation with known hate groups. The use of Slack by hate groups runs counter to everything we believe in at Slack and is not welcome on our platform. Slack is designed to help businesses communicate better and more collaboratively so people can do their best work. Using Slack to encourage or incite hatred and violence against groups or individuals because of who they are is antithetical to our values and the very purpose of Slack. When we are made aware of an organization using Slack for illegal, harmful, or other prohibited purposes, we will investigate and take appropriate action and we are updating our terms of service to make that more explicit.”
