Twitter CEO Says More Will Be Done To Combat Hate Speech, Abuse

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, says the platform hasn't responded adequately to hate speech and abuse on the platform. It's working hard to adopt a "more aggressive stance" that'll combat issues like "unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorify violence."

He says there are voices being silenced on Twitter "every day" because of these ongoing problems. Twitter has been working to deal with the issue "for the past 2 years."

Today we saw voices silencing themselves and voices speaking out because we're *still* not doing enough...We've been working intensely over the past few months and focused today on making some critical decisions. - Dorsey

Changes are going to start rolling out in the next few weeks and Dorsey says more info will be shared next week.
