Chief Executive and co-founder Jack Dorsey tweetstormed a plea for ways to make Twitter’s social network a nicer place by measuring ‘collective health, openness, and civility of public conversation.’ He said Twitter accepted responsibility for inadvertently helping to spread misinformation, harassment and manipulation via bots. He also asked the public to propose solutions and cited work in this area by the nonprofit organization Cortico.” I wish I had faith in this initiative. I do not.
