“I’m so tired of leftists calling me a nazi, they must do that to everyone all the time. So overplayed. Idiots!” -some alt-right nazi. Even the computer algorithm knows that they’re nazis. It would be nice for the computers to really drive that point home to them as well.

I think this is the same reason that Reddit lets them proliferate so much.

“Algorithms can’t distinguish between republicans and white supremacists” – Yeah well it’s getting harder and harder for this human to distinguish between them anymore either. The Venn diagram is pretty close to a perfect circle these days

Was going to post this article over in the tech sub, but they had already taken it down for not being technology related. I see this subs description of them still holds true…

“If we turn this on, we might have to ban Steve King.”

(Feature, not a bug.)

I’d like to see the tweets that constitute white supremacy are from politicians and other Republicans. Maybe it’s an issue as to what they define as white supremacy from a data point of view.

I have similar difficulties making that differentiation.

So it will work. I don’t see a downside here.

Somehow I feel like this is taken out of context. Machine learned rules can be notoriously stupid.

When your politics become so racist/twisted that they resemble Nazi writings….

That’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

Given that our own Attorney General is telling people to not comply with a subpoena, I would consider this a good start.

Just flag them. Mark the tweets clearly and let them howl in mock outrage.

Clearly it needs access to the friends list to check if they have a black friend or not

Could you imagine if trumps twitter was held to the same standards as a regular user? He would be so angry when he got banned every other day for inciting violence, harassment, racism etc.
