Facebook and Twitter are getting ready to face the United Kingdom Government who solicited, during the protests, some limitations on social networks.
The officials of Facebook and Twitter will meet on Thursday with the Internal Affairs Minister, Theresa May, to talk about the way the social networks influenced the recent United Kingdom protests.
Many protests were coordinated and setup through Facebook and Twitter. The influence of Twitter, Facebook and Blackberry Messenger during the United Kingdom protests was very harshly criticized by Prime Minister David Cameron. He said that he considered banning the use of social networks by those that are using them to incite to violence.
Theresa May will meet with the representatives of the social networks to discuss future security measures.
Facebook, a social network that has 30 million users in the United Kingdom, claims to have deleted many messages that incited to violence to help stop the latest riots.
