Elon Musk Announces New Twitter Policy To Curb Hate Speech
Just days after the mass exodus of employees, the new Twitter Chief Elon Musk late Friday announced his plans for content moderation on the microblogging site.
Musk in the announcement said-new Twitter’s policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach. Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter.”
To put in simpler terms- negative or hate tweets will be “deboosted and demonetized,” which essentially means that they won’t be visible to a user unless they especially look for it.
Amidst the resignations ‘2.0’ as many as hundreds departed the company with a severance of three months after Musk’s deadline that staffers must sign up for long hours at high intensity.
Besides, the sole director of the company also posted a Twitter poll if former US President Donald Trump’s account should be reinstated. ” Vox Populi, Vox Dei- read his tweet which is a Latin phrase meaning ‘the voice of the people is the voice of the god’.
Three weeks after the take over Twitter bid adieu to several employees beginning with the dissolution of the board of directors as top executives were fired in the first official decision by the Tesla boss.
