TechDirt: Facebook, Twitter Consistently Fail At Distinguishing Abuse From Calling Out Abuse

TechDirt: Facebook, Twitter Consistently Fail At Distinguishing Abuse From Calling Out Abuse. “Time and time again, we see that everyone who doesn’t work in the field of trust and safety for an internet platform seems to think that it’s somehow “easy” to filter out “bad” content and leave up “good” content. It’s not. This doesn’t mean that platforms shouldn’t try to deal with the issue. They have perfectly good business reasons to want to limit people using their systems to abuse and harass and threaten other users. But when you demand that they be legally responsible — as Germany (and then Russia) recently did — bad things happen, and quite frequently those bad things happen to the victims of abuse or harassment or threats.”
