The Union of French Jewish Students (UEJF) is suing Twitter for nearly $50 million after it refused to turn over the names of people who had tweeted racist and anti-semitic remarks, as ruled by a French court. The case revolves around a hashtag — #unbonjuif (“a good Jew”) — which became the third-most popular on the site in October, Ars Technica reports. The UEJF sued Twitter in order to get the international social media giant to turn over the details of allegedly racist people to comply with French hate speech laws.
