Democratic nomination favorite Hillary Clinton is reiterating her stance that social media companies like Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) need to work with the government to fight ISIS.
Clinton said that tech companies needed to work with the government to develop a “unified national strategy in cyberspace” at a speech in Minnesota on Tuesday, just before her Republican rivals took the stage in Las Vegas, reported the New York Times.
One of the first steps, Clinton said, was to change the relationship between Silicon Valley and Washington.
“The tech community and the government have to stop seeing each other as adversaries,” she noted.
Clinton wants the companies to quickly remove websites and videos that promote jihad or attempt to recruit for ISIS and other organizations. She has stopped short of calling for backdoors to encryption.
This is one of the few anti-ISIS strategies that has some level of bi-partisan support. A bill was introduced last week in the Senate with a sponsor from both sides of the aisle.
In the Republican debate, a number of candidates also expressed support for passing legislation requiring tech companies to work with government to find potential terrorists.
