Twitter Introduces Tools to Stop Hate Speech & Abusive Language

Twitter has finally unveiled several new tools to help curb online hate speech and abusive language.

After being met with criticism for not addressing issues related to abusive posts by its users, the social media platform is has come up with ways to help stop the hateful content.

The site announced on Tuesday (November 15) that it will now be easier for users to hide content they do not wish to see and to report abusive posts.

“Because Twitter happens in public and in real-time, we’ve had some challenges keeping up with and curbing abusive conduct. We took a step back to reset and take a new approach, find and focus on the most critical needs, and rapidly improve. There are three areas we’re focused on, and happy to announce progress around today: controls, reporting, and enforcement,” the company said in a statement.

Users will now be able to mute keywords, phrases and entire conversations they don’t want to see notifications about in addition to easily reporting abuse that will be handled by a specialized team.

This sounds like a great start to eliminating hateful posts on Twitter!

    They shouldn’t have waited until Donald Trump became President to do this. Would have been useful against him and his deplorables during the election.

    So in other words there is no point to being on twitter unless you’re there to lick someone’s asshole.
