Twitter Gives Online Hate Speech Its Biggest Platform — Why?
During the last months, anti-Semitic attacks and trolling has risen to seemingly unprecedented levels on social media sites.
The problem’s gotten so bad that the Anti-Defamation League created a task force combating online hate speech. (Their first report will be released this Wednesday.)
Of course the biggest problem is those who are posting all that hateful comments.
But there is also the company providing the platform that trolls love the most: Twitter.
To be fair, fighting online trolls is a Sisyphean task. But experts say Twitter is the worst offender among big media giants in policing hate speech. Facebook or Google are doing a much better job, they say.
