Twitter has decided that it will not be prohibiting the Taliban from using its platform, breaking ranks with Facebook, TikTok, and other tech companies who have decided to ban the terror group. 

When asked if the Taliban will be disallowed from their platform, a spokesman from the company seemingly avoided the question, saying that Twitter will “continue to proactively enforce” its rules on the “glorification of violence, platform manipulation and spam.” The spokesman took time to praise Twitter for its benevolence as well, saying he was “witnessing people in the country using Twitter to seek help and assistance.”

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid is active on the website and currently has over 300,000 followers.

Mujahid is not the only Taliban member on the platform, with an announcement of his about a Taliban press conference in Kabul drawing messages from various supporters, including one who goes by the name Muhammad Ibrahim.
