The demand was originally made in September and was brought forth again this month after violence erupted in Gaza between Israel and Hamas.
Seven House Republicans, led by Ted Poe of Texas, made the request: "Allowing foreign terrorist organizations like Hamas to operate on Twitter is enabling the enemy,. Failure to block access arms them with the ability to freely spread their violent propaganda and mobilize in their War on Israel.
Anti-American foreign terrorist groups around the world are doing the same thing every day. The FBI and Twitter must recognize sooner rather than later that social media is a tool for the terrorists."
The FBI responded by saying they "will respond to members of Congress directly. Our response is being considered internally."
