Social media platform Twitter is dropping the terms "master", "slave" and "blacklist" in favour of more inclusive language.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

The terms are frequently used in programming codes which originated decades ago.

US bank JPMorgan has also announced a similar move as more companies address racism following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.

Replacing the terms could cost millions and take months, according to experts.
