Report: Twitter joins crackdown on terror-related content in Indonesia

U.S.-based Twitter Inc. has agreed to provide special access to Indonesia's Information Technology Ministry to report terror-related content that would lead to its deletion, The Wall Street Journal reported Aug. 4, citing Semuel Pangerapan, director general of information application at the ministry.

Twitter executives declined to comment, according to the report.

Google Inc. will also work with several Indonesian nongovernmental organizations to help authorities better police controversial online content, including posts by extremists, through the roll out of Trusted Flagger, which is expected to be fully functional in the next two to three months, among other initiatives.

Indonesia had threatened to ban social media and messaging apps if people could not be stopped from spreading such content.
