Twitter has been engulfed in a wave of French anti-Semitic posts using the hashtag #unbonjuif, meaning “a good Jew” in French.

The tweets were condemned by French anti-racist and Jewish organizations on Monday.

In a statement, the Anti-Defamation League said the social networking service, founded in 206 with an estimated 500 million current users,“lags far behind other established social media platforms” in tackling hate speech and banning those who use it.
