On Monday, Facebook said recent china post linked the protestors to IS fighters and Twitter stated “We don’t want you radical people in hong kong. Just get out of here!” Both the social platforms are also deleting accounts and pages related to the hong kong protest.


Twitter deleted 936 accounts and Facebook removed 7 pages, 3 groups and 5 accounts for the growing anti government protest over china’s growing influence. Twitter would also ban state-backed media for promoting the protestors in their service, which encourages the protestors to be violent by more western interest.
