The Daily Caller reports that Twitter has severed ties with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) following reports of a number of scandals within the organization; some insider reports allege that the SPLC’s “hate” monitoring is, in fact, a money making scam. Previously, the SPLC was one of Twitter’s “safety partners” which helped to identify and remove “hateful conduct and harassment” on the platform.

An anonymous source inside Twitter told the Daily Caller: “The SPLC is not a member of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council or a partner the company has worked with recently.” Currently, the SPLC is not present on Twitter’s Safety Partners list. The SPLC has long come under fire for labeling mainstream conservative groups as hate groups; organizations which have been incorrectly branded by the SPLC include the Family Research Council, the Ruth Institute, Alliance Defending Freedom, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and Jihad Watch.
