Watch what you tweet. Crediting the same technology it uses to fight spam and platform manipulation, the company claimed in a Tuesday blog post that 38 percent of abusive content is now “surfaced proactively” for humans to review — up from 0 percent last year. The social media platform, which typically relies on abuse reports from users, also said it now responds 60 percent faster to requests for appeals.
How else is Twitter fighting abuse? In June, it’ll begin testing a “hide replies” feature allowing users to select which responses are displayed in a given thread.
