Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to meet with Twitter boss Jack Dorsey

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will meet with Twitter's chief executive Jack Dorsey on Monday to continue the conversation about eliminating extremist content online.

The pair previously met in Paris when Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron launched the Christchurch Call - a pledge by 16 countries and eight technology companies to eliminate terrorist content from the internet.

Monday's meeting in Wellington comes as many continue to call for 8chan's Twitter account to be suspended.

The #unTwitter8chan hashtag gained prominence in August after the controversial site crashed, but its Twitter account remained online.

Before it went offline, 8chan was described as a cesspool of extremist content and racist rhetoric.

People using the hashtag said 8chan and its administrators shouldn't be given a platform by the social media site. The account provides a link to the crashed site and says it is the located in the "Darkest Reaches of the Internet".

The account is also verified by Twitter with a blue tick.

"An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest," Twitter says. However, it also notes a verification badge isn't an endorsement.

Ardern's office wouldn't confirm that she would raise 8chan's Twitter account in her meeting with Dorsey, but a spokesperson told Newshub they will be "continuing discussions on eliminating terrorist content from social media platforms".

8chan received attention in New Zealand after the alleged Christchurch shooter posted links on it to a livestream of the March 15 massacre.

In August, following the El Paso shooting, 8chan network provider Cloudflare announced it would terminate 8chan's service. The site then crashed - however, its administrators are attempting to get it back online.

Former Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos told The Washington Post that 8chan could use Twitter to broadcast where to find them now that their site was offline.

Gwen Snyder, who researches the alt-right, has been one of the biggest supporters of the #unTwitter8chan campaign, organising efforts to boycott companies which advertise on Twitter.

She said: "Twitter has a moral obligation to #untwitter8chan. If their hearts are too cold to hurt for the murdered, we'll make their wallets hurt. Let's do this."

Twitter has been contacted for comment.
