Report: Hate Speech Returns to Twitter Following Elon Musk’s Takeover

Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, according to an NGO concerned with monitoring hate speech online, has led to the spread of more harmful material.

According to their statistics, the number of derogatory tweets and other statements on the network has increased.

Hate Speech is Back on Twitter

Research from the Centre for Countering Digital (CCDH) alleges that hate speech on the platform has surged ever since Musk took his Twitter rule, but the new Chief Twit denied these claims and labeled them utterly absurd.

The NGO reported that 1,282 tweets are bigoted toward people on average each day.

The group discovered that after Musk finalized the acquisition transaction, the amount of hate speech tweets increased to 3,876. They also observed that since then, there have been 4,650 or so hostile tweets per day on average.

The average number of likes and comments on these nasty tweets climbed from 13.3 to 49.5, according to CCDH.

Elon Musk’s Aim for Free Speech

Elon Musk-Twitter-Hate Speech-Take Over
Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, according to an NGO concerned with monitoring hate speech online, has led to the spread of more harmful material.

Advocates for online safety are not very excited by Musk’s purchase of the Bird app. Activist groups had expressed fear that the billionaire’s absolutist attitude on free speech would provide a forum for extremists.

In addition to several employees leaving the platform under the new management, several celebrities have also left the platform. One of them is Yoel Roth, the former Head of Trust and Safety, who recently asserted in an interview that Musk’s leadership of Twitter makes it unsafe.

Musk just reversed the COVID-19 misinformation policy for the app, but he previously insisted that Twitter’s commitment to content moderation would not change.

Public personalities who have been barred from the network for allegedly breaking its rules against hate speech and incorrect information have also been granted a broad amnesty, as per Musk.

Trump was previously banned for allegedly inciting violence during the Capital Riots, but even before this announcement, Musk had already reinstated him. On Friday, December 2, Musk made an unexpected move when he suspended Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, weeks after his reinstatement to the bird app.

Ye shared a passage from an interview where he claimed to have admiration for both Nazis and Jews. He also posted an image with the Swastika sign in the following tweet. This ultimately led Musk to once again suspend the rapper from Twitter.
