UK Government Warns Social Media Giants to Aid Fight Extremism....

The UK government has issued a stern warning to social media companies.

The companies could be penalized through taxes if they fail to cooperate with the government's efforts to fight extremism and terrorism online.

According to minister of state for security Ben Wallace, Britain is now more vulnerable than it has been for 100 years as a result of terrorism spurred on by radicalised content online and patience is wearing thin with companies that put their own profits before public safety. 

Social media companies have not done enough to help and they have even obstructed government efforts to fight extremism by blocking access to encrypted messages or by allowing extremist content to remain on their sites which is costing taxpayers a great deal of money.
