Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How should social media companies handle the Taliban? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
The Taliban says it has changed.
And it has promised respect for women’s rights, protection for the Afghan people and peaceful international relations.
One powerful tool it is increasingly turning to get that message across is social media.
The platforms now face a challenge on how to deal with the group that is set to form Afganitsan’s new government.
While some platforms have banned Taliban accounts, others are still making up their minds.
So, how has the group been promoting its messages online?
