Hate speech down significantly on Twitter: Musk - San Francisco News

"Hate speech impressions down by one-third from pre-spike levels. Congrats to Twitter team!" Musk tweeted.

"I have half a mind to wag my finger at the 1500 accounts that caused the spike, but I shall forebear."

Several users expressed their thoughts on Musk's post.

While one user commented, "Source? Ummm Twitter! They are the subject matter experts of their own data", another asked: "Who determines what is hate speech?"

Last month, a report mentioned that 1,500 accounts were suspended for posting hate speech on the micro-blogging platform.

"We have actually seen hateful speech at times this week decline below our prior norms, contrary to what you may read in the press," Musk had tweeted earlier this month.

The Twitter CEO had described himself as a free speech absolutist, and he was widely anticipated to change platform's content moderation guidelines.
