Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube say they will create a database of terrorist content online to act more quickly whenever videos, imagery or other information appears on their platforms.

In a joint statement, the companies will share digital fingerprints called “hashes” for videos or images pulled from their platforms.

“We hope this collaboration will lead to greater efficiency as we continue to enforce our policies to help curb the pressing global issue of terrorist content online,” reads a portion of the statement.
