Summary:

Twitter hosted “significant numbers of racist and dehumanizing tweets that were plainly intended to stir up hatred,” the panel said. The company removed many of them after the lawmakers complained, but it refused to delete a cartoon showing “ethnic minority migrants tying up and abusing a semi-naked white woman, while stabbing her baby to death,” because it didn’t breach its “hateful conduct policy,” the report said.
