Starting our #MONDAY MANIA with a piece about Twitter protection!!
How Twitter tries to protect those most likely to be abused?
Our worlds are tightly packed around the internet which comes with its own pros and cons. Pros being easy access to all kinds of information, literally ALL!! Cons being less amount of privacy and security for those willing to share this information. And like every other social media platform,
Twitter’s come under fire multiple times for the harassment many users face on the platform. But how does a platform as giant as twitter filter out abusive and harassment posts away from others? As per reports, Project Guardian is an internal anti-harassment program at Twitter.
Cool name- Project Guardian.
It is a list of public figures including politicians, athletes, journalists who report on controversial topics, and celebrities -- the sort of people most likely to garner abuse on a regular basis. The rules are the same for them as for any of Twitter’s 200m daily users. You can’t harass Britney, who has 55.7m+ followers, nor some random dude with 10.
But when someone reports abusive content concerning accounts on the list, Twitter’s moderation system reviews it faster which then guarantees that the abusive content doesn't reach more accounts and prevents it from spreading further, which is more likely when it involves someone with a lot of followers.
But Project Guardian doesn't guards just famous people. As the meme goes, Twitter has a new “main character” every day.
They’re often ordinary people who’ve gone viral and attracted a lot of attention, like Bean Dad, the father who told his 9-year-old she had to learn to use a can opener if she wanted baked beans.
Twitter can temporarily add main characters to Project Guardian until the heat cools off. And that's how it keeps an eye on what happens in its territory.
