New heights of convergence

Twitter, as per the second law, doubles down on social justice convergence:

To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies. With hundreds of millions of Tweets sent per day, the volume of content on Twitter is massive, which makes it extraordinarily complex to strike the right balance between fighting abuse and speaking truth to power. It requires a multi-layered approach where each of our 320 million users has a part to play, as do the community of experts working for safety and free expression.

That’s why we are announcing the formation of the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a new and foundational part of our strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.

As we develop products, policies, and programs, our Trust & Safety Council will help us tap into the expertise and input of organizations at the intersection of these issues more efficiently and quickly. In developing the Council, we are taking a global and inclusive approach so that we can hear a diversity of voices from organizations including:

  • Feminist Frequency
  • The Anti-Defamation League

It’s as if they are literally Hell-bent on self-destruction. This is truly remarkable! I have never been more confident about the Alt Right’s ability to seize the cultural high ground. There are more opportunities presenting themselves than we can possibly address at once.
