twitter-logoTwitter is now Monitoring inappropriate behavior; amid election results

In a new study conducted by Twitter’s head of safety, Del Harvey, it’s now taking a look at a number of tweets that have been posted by users who have made derogatory, inflammatory messages about other members on their site. They claim the reason there has been an increase in these inappropriate comments stem from last Tuesday’s Presidential Election, when Donald Trump won the Electoral College vote.

When Twitter was made aware of this, they acted swiftly, by monitoring each tweet that used phrases that depicted hate speech, and made it clear that these kinds of tweets will not be tolerated on their site, and anyone who makes these comments will be in violation of their code of conduct rules. Even President-elect Trump has taken a stance and has told people to recuse themselves from such behavior and the FBI came out with a statistic on hate crimes, which have rose 7%, mostly affecting the Muslim American community.
