ADL: Twitch, the gaming network, is most effective social platform at curbing Holocaust denial

(JTA) — How well are the world’s most prominent social media companies rooting out Holocaust denial on their platforms? Not at all, the Anti-Defamation League concluded after reviewing their policies this month — and then testing how those policies are put into practice.

Only Twitch, the platform for games, earned a “B” grade from the organization, which has been lobbying social media companies to take a stronger stance against hate on their platforms. Twitch both formally bars Holocaust denial and removed a post that an ADL investigator flagged as containing Holocaust-denying content, according to the group’s first-ever “Online Holocaust Denial Report Card,” released Wednesday.
