The Japan News: Suicide solicitations pose problems for social media

The Japan News: Suicide solicitations pose problems for social media. “Recently, people seeking partners with whom to commit suicide have become less likely to use so-called ‘suicide websites’ for that purpose and more likely to use Twitter and other social media. Many messages looking for people who want to commit suicide are posted there. The National Police Agency has categorized such posts as “harmful information,” but it is difficult to delete them completely under the current circumstances.”
