Florian Hanke 🍎You're right, they did make a lot of improvements from 2014 onwards regarding harrassment and bots. I've seen a few users' positive commentsSee more on this recently.
I was being unclear – my comment was aimed at their platforming horrible people (doxxing parents who have lost a child and so on and so forth) when other social media platforms are able to remove them.
Twitters rules are applied in an extremely unequal way – profiles which e.g. show paintings of nude women from the 1800s are suspended, and so are profiles which add Elon Musk to their name. In minutes. While profiles like Trump's or Alex Jones' are kept up and the decisions are defended by the "newsworthiness" of their Tweets, an obvious loophole.
For these reasons I am not ready to cut them some slack.
Honi soit qui mal y pense, but when Apple, Facebook and so on deplatform e.g. Alex Jones, and Twitter doesn't they signal to right-wingers that they are very welcome, and having more users is not the worst thing for a shrinking social media platform.
Florian Hanke 🍎Ohhh, I get your "slack" comment now – I misinterpreted it. Yes, completely agree with you that Facebook, YouTube, and Apple also screw up for the reasons you mention. Thanks!
