Twitter’s definition of hate speech continues to grow

Twitter updated their ’Hateful Conduct’ policy to forbid language that it claims ’dehumanizes’ people based on age, disability or disease. According to the company, earlier tweets that violated this rule in the past will have to be deleted, but those won’t result in retroactive account suspensions.

I'm betting their definition of "hate speech" is extremely vague and one sided. That's some good old authoritarianism.

"This overarching policy includes rules about hateful conduct — meaning promoting violence or making threats" So then just like before, people with preferred pronouns in their bio will be exempt.

join Voat, Gab, Discord, Telegram... all the other platforms steal your info, brainwash you to be controlled and complacent in having your rights infringed, and also misinform you with disinfo for their own agenda, not for the betterment of mankind.

Whatever hate speech actually entails it's still protected. people have a right to say whatever. No matter how wrong, stupid, or offensive. As long as they don't call for violence its protected. But I'm not gonna jump in to protect you if you spout racial slurs at a group and they pummel you.

And why won’t they suspend accounts (like certain over weight orange people)? Because revenue is more important than doing the right thing!
