The group features have been responsive on platforms like Facebook. These groups powered by Facebook have served as a channel to instigate violence while adding positive values in the society, such as promoting fair elections, even the current malady that threatens the world.
Although Twitter is expected to perfectly control its users in terms of such unavoidable matters whereby, they disclosed they are developing a means for users to block ill contents automatically. In contrast, Twitter maintains the status quo of an open-ended service which disrupts users from misbehaving.
