In any given day, 166-million users can be vomiting their spur-of-the-moment thoughts over Twitter’s social media platform. Of those tweets, some can be informative, witty, and insightful…and others can be hurtful, misleading, and downright crude. In a recent post, Twitter saysthey’re looking into a way to help curb the crudity.
In its entirety, the post reads, “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.” So, put in play, that means someone…theoretically…will put together a curse-word-ridden post, send it, and then be given the option of re-considering their choice of colorful adjectives.
Does anyone really think that’ll end well for anyone?
