TEL AVIV (Sputnik) - Israeli Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked said Tuesday that terrorist organizations are leaving Facebook for Twitter, as the latter ignores calls for the removal of extremist content.

"Terrorist organizations are switching from Facebook to Twitter. The reason is simple: Facebook responds effectively to our requests for the removal of terrorist materials, and Twitter ignores them," Shaked wrote on Twitter.

She also highly assessed cooperation with Facebook, and threatened Twitter with actions of a legal nature.
