Shareholders press Twitter and Facebook to act on fake news, hate speech and sexual harassment

A group of shareholders on Thursday demanded that Facebook and Twitter disclose more information about sexual harassment, fake news, hate speech and other forms of abuse that take place on the companies’ platforms.

The shareholder resolution by the New York State Comptroller's office, which operates the state’s pension fund, and Arjuna Capital, a Boston-based boutique investment firm, puts pressure on tech giants to publish detailed reports on the scope of the problems and how they plan to address them.
