Tech giants Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter and Google have agreed to do more to remove extremist content within hours of it being posted.

 
The accord was decided at a two-day meeting between the G7 nations and the tech firms, hosted on the Italian island of Ischia.


The aim, according to officials, is to remove jihadist content from the internet within two hours.


In a tweet, Twitter said the talks had been "important and productive".
