When things get heated, you may say things you don't mean. To let you rethink a reply, we’re running a limited experiment on iOS with a prompt that gives you the option to revise your reply before it’s published if it uses language that could be harmful.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) May 5, 2020
- This is not an edit button. It's more like a self-edit warning feature option prompt thing.
- Apparently you can still tweet your reply without actually changing the "harmful" language.
- Twitter's own hateful conduct policy already claims to "prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category" including "targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals" as well as "dehumanization of a group of people based on their religion, age, disability, or serious disease."
ONTD, do you swear more often online than you do IRL?
