Twitter Plans ‘Hate Speech’ Crackdown After Backlash From Upset Employees
.
Looks like Alex Jones may not be safe on Twitter soon also.

--

Twitter is planning to accelerate changes to the company’s speech policies after a backlash from its own employees who want the company to ban right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, responding to a critical tweet from a Twitter engineer, said Wednesday he is “not happy” with Twitter’s current policies, which he said need to “evolve.”

Twitter vice president Del Harvey also sent a company-wide email Wednesday pledging to accelerate Twitter’s efforts to crack down on “dehumanizing hate speech,” in the wake of internal “conversations” about Jones.

Harvey noted that Twitter also plans to evaluate whether the company needs to better police “off-platform behavior.”

Dorsey explained Tuesday why Twitter has yet to follow Facebook, Google and Apple’s lead by banning Jones: “he hasn’t violated our rules.”

“If we succumb and simply react to outside pressure, rather than straightforward principles we enforce (and evolve) impartially regardless of political viewpoints, we become a service that’s constructed by our personal views that can swing in any direction,” Dorsey tweeted. “That’s not us.”

Dorsey’s explanation angered some of his employees, who demanded the CEO do more to regulate speech on the platform. (RELATED: Twitter’s Censorship Problem Looks Like It’s Here To Stay)

“There is no honor in resisting ‘outside pressure’, just to pat ourselves on the back for being ‘impartial,'” Twitter engineer Marina Zhao replied, adding: “Twitter does not exist in a vacuum, and it is wrong to ignore the serious real-world harm, and to equate that with political viewpoints.”

Engineer Kenneth Kufluk also stated his disagreement with his boss that Jones hadn’t violated any rules.

The MSM have been dehumanizing white males for a long time now.

"Bash the fash", calling them Nazis and white supremacists. And the most obvious one.... Calling them RACISTS (although this doesn't work on me at all, the effectiveness of this on most sheeple is frightening).

Looks like Alex Jones got temporarily Bingo'd from Twitter now also...

Quote:Twitter has restricted the account of right-wing media personality Alex Jones for violating its policies, the company told CNBC.

Jones will be blocked from posting on Twitter for seven days because of a post that linked to a policy-violating video, Dow Jones reported.

A Twitter representative told CNBC: "I can confirm that a tweet was reported to us which contained a link to a video on Periscope. Upon review we determined it violated our rules and required the account to delete the tweet and video." Periscope is a live streaming app owned by Twitter.

Jones' Twitter account now has "limited functionality," a Twitter spokesperson told CNBC. During the seven day period, the account can't be used to tweet or retweet, but it can still be used to read others' posts.
