Benzinga · 09/01/2021 13:21
  • Twitter Inc's (NYSE:TWTR) latest Safety Mode feature will automatically block aggressive and hateful users for platform sanctity, Bloomberg reports.
  • The company will use automated technology to judge the content of a tweet and "the relationship between the Tweet author and replier" for appropriate decision-making.
  • The technology can determine which users regularly interact to prevent wrongful blocking.
  • Previously Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) had introduced features to monitor hate speech.
  • Twitter shares are trading higher over the reports of its bitcoin testing on the Lightning Network.
  • Price Action: TWTR shares traded higher by 2.17% at $65.9 on the last check Wednesday.
