US Twitter has announced that it has formed a team to deal with harmful content related to the incident before January 6, one year after the attack on the federal parliament.

In the case, supporters of former President Trump rushed into the Capitol as the process of certifying the victory of Democratic Party Biden in the presidential election is underway. Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have been accused of promoting radical behavior.

Twitter told Reuters that it had “convened a cross-functional working group.” The group is made up of members of a series of teams that ensure the integrity, credibility, and safety of the site, and monitors violent posts and accounts on the first milestone of the incident. He did not disclose the number of team members.

A spokeswoman for Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook) said, “We continue to actively monitor threats on our platform and respond accordingly.”

A Google spokeswoman said he had removed tens of thousands of videos that violated U.S. election policies over the past year, and said he would continue to closely monitor election-related misinformation on the site.
