Twitter tests filter of potentially abusive messages

this way the letters will be sent to a separate folder.

How it works

In 2019, Twitter began making its firststeps to identify and block offensive tweets without human intervention. However, the system does not work perfectly: there is still a lot of dirt on the social network, and the algorithm is prone to false positives.

The developers found that most of the "chernukha"accounts for personal messages from complete strangers, especially minorities and women. A new filter should fix this problem. With it, all potentially offensive emails will be sent to the “additional messages” folder. This will blur the first few lines with the note “This message has been hidden because it may contain offensive content.” Then it all depends on the user whether he will be interested in reading such a message or not.
