France Orders Twitter to Identify Racists

(Paris, France)
A French court ruled Thursday that Twitter must help identify the authors of racist tweets posted on its site.

The ruling follows a complaint brought by an activist group in October that argued such tweets breach laws against inciting racial hatred.

Microblogging site Twitter must hand over data to help identify users who post racist and anti-Semitic comments, a French court ruled on Thursday.
Twitter folks and government ministers will meet next month to discuss the issue.
