Far-right group Britain First kicked off Twitter after Scram campaign

Far-right hate group Britain First has been kicked off Twitter (again) after a campaign by Scram and other anti-hate groups.

A few weeks ago, Britain First snuck back onto the social media platform, creating a “press updates” account to share their Islamophobic bile.

However, after complaints from hundreds of Scram community members and other anti-racism groups including TellMAMA and Red & Green Action, the account has now been shut down, with Twitter acknowledging that it violated the platform’s rules.

In 2017, Twitter suspended Britain First’s account, after the social media company implemented new anti-abuse rules. Leader Paul Golding and then deputy Jayda Fransen’s accounts were also suspended.

However, the far-right gammon army’s latest attempts to re-infiltrate the platform have now been thwarted.

Credit to everyone who reported Britain First’s hate. We’re winning the fight against the far-right.


WHO WE ARE

We write news that exposes the deception of populism and the hypocrisy of the elites who peddle it. We run campaigns that allow us to work together to fight back.

We hate Brexit. We hate Boris. We hate the far-right. We want climate action, the end of austerity, and a pro-European future.

Press for change.
