Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube teamed up to form the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism in June, and the group will hold its first workshop Tuesday in San Francisco.

Representatives from the tech industry, government and non-governmental organizations will gather and share information and best practices about taking on terrorist content online.

The GIFCT said it is building on the work it started within the EU Internet Forum and the shared industry hash database by fostering collaboration with smaller tech companies, civil society groups, academics and governments.

The founding companies will be joined in San Francisco by more than two-dozen other tech companies and NGOs, including Snapchat parent Snap Inc.
