A German agency has announced to quit X, previously known as Twitter, over increasing hate and intolerance on the platform.
Germany’s Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency accused the platform of not regulating anti-minority sentiment, putting many lives in danger.
Racism Rising on X
The agency’s commissioner, Ferda Ataman, announced in a statement they are suspending the agency’s operations on X because of a rise in racism.
“X is no longer a sustainable environment for a public agency,” the commissioner said.
The Anti-Discrimination Agency said they couldn’t tackle the rising level of hatred as more staff will be recruited.
Anti-Semetism is Rising
The agency specifically mentioned anti-Semitism and said X was not doing enough to curb it.
Multiple state and non-state agencies have urged Elon Musk to ensure the platform is a healthy place for people around the globe.
