Twitter Safety claimed in a tweet on Tuesday that over 99% of the material users and advertisers see on the platform is "healthy" and that so-called "hate speech" marks a tiny proportion of content. But Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York responded to the tweet, beginning her comments by writing, "lololol."
"More than 99% of content users and advertisers see on Twitter is healthy. And the reach of hate speech on Twitter continues to represent an extremely small fraction of the overall conversation," Twitter Safety tweeted.
"This past March, Twitter partnered with Sprinklr to understand, measure and reduce hate speech using its AI-based model and to further our commitment to create a brand-safe environment for our agencies and advertisers," the tweet notes. "Sprinklr's independent model continues to show the reach of daily English-language hate speech impressions is even lower than Twitter's own model estimates. Sprinklr estimates the average daily number to be 0.003% compared to Twitter's estimate of 0.012% for the period of January 1, 2023 to May 31, 2023. Additionally, we estimate hate speech impressions are 30 percent lower on average vs. pre-acquisition."
Elon Musk responded to the tweet by writing, "Great work by the X/Twitter team."
But Ocasio-Cortez asserted that she has never suffered more harassment on Twitter than she is presently experiencing.
"I have never experienced more harassment on this platform than I do now. People now pay to give their harassment more visibility. The de-verification of journalists, civic orgs, and figures has made it impossible to follow conversations. I wish it could be usable again," the congresswoman wrote.
