  • UNISERV CMU – Inthanin Room

The session aims to examine the rise in hate speech on Twitter following billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover. It will explore the future of expression on the platform, impacts of massive cuts in workforce on the accountability infrastructure, discontinuation of transparency reports, and Musk’s claims of declining hate speech on Twitter under his management.Given recent developments regarding “government-funded” labels for news organizations, the dialogue will also touch upon the suitability of Twitter for news outlets and what their withdrawal would mean for the platform.
