Sen. Dianne Feinstein is working to reintroduce a bill that would enlist the help of social media to report suspected terrorist activity.
The legislation would require social media platforms such as Facebook to alert law enforcement when suspicious postings are noticed. Social media groups killed the earlier version of the bill in August of this year.
The renewed push for the legislation comes after last week’s San Bernardino shootings in which one of the suspected shooters, Tashfeen Malik, pledged allegiance to ISIS on a Facebook post.
