Twitter CEO plots to change rules in hate speech crackdown
10 Agosto, 2018, 07:43 | Author: Kelly Blake
Following the purge of Infowars by big tech companies earlier this week, the Infowars app has been trending: now, it's ranked No. 3 in the "News" category of Apple's App Store, behind Twitter and News Break and ahead of apps for news organizations including CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and BuzzFeed.
The moves mark a dramatic defense of Twitter's unpopular decisions following the tech industry's steadfast response to Jones and Infowars. When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts. Since the app hosts livestreams rather than recorded videos or audio clips (like the removedInfoWars podcasts), it makes it harder to discover when the app itself has violated Apple's rules.
"We didn't suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday", Dorsey said in a series of tweets late Tuesday. Among the podcasts, which were removed from Apples' iTunes directory, are the show "War Room" as well as the popular Alex Jones Show podcast, which is hosted daily by the prominent conspiracy theorist.
"NBC Nightly News" correspondent Jo Ling Kent said Wednesday morning that she's been requesting interviews with Dorsey for five years.
Apple took this action after YouTube, Spotify and Facebook had already removed some of Jones' offensive content.
He said he wanted the company to avoid succumbing to outside pressure but instead impartially enforce straightforward principles "regardless of political viewpoints". Dorsey also said that journalists should "document, validate, and refute" the falsities and "sensationalized issues" that accounts like Jones' peddle.
The Infowars app contains only rebroadcasts of the current day's episodes, subjecting a much smaller set of content to the rules. It has suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job orchestrated by the United States government. This week, YouTube said that its decision to delete the Infowars channel was prompted by Jones violating a temporary ban against broadcasting live on YouTube. In June, The Washington Postreported that Dorsey, in an attempt to assuage conservative critics who think his platform is biased against them, took a private dinner with Republican leaders and conservative commentators in May.
