Platform X does not moderate posts that contain hate speech and promote anti-Semitic conspiracies, dehumanizing Muslims and Palestinians. This is stated in a report by the Center for Combating Digital Hate (CCDH), according to TechCrunch.
The organization analyzed 200 such posts that were posted on 101 social media accounts of Elon Musk. The information that the posts contained hate speech was sent on October 31. For this purpose, in particular, the relevant X tools were used.
However, the CCDH reported that 196 posts are still online. In total, they have received over 24 million views. At the same time, TechCrunch drew attention to the fact that 82 out of 101 accounts are paid verified accounts.
“X has sought to reassure advertisers and the public that they have a handle on hate speech – but our research indicates that these are nothing but empty words,” noted in the CCDH.
Earlier it became known that as a result of Elon Musk’s initiatives to restrict access to the X platform, more than 100 studies on the social network were canceled, suspended or changed.
We are talking about the restrictions imposed on critical methods for collecting data on X. They have made it impossible to identify the source and ways of spreading false information during real-time events.
