Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) New Rules
In a private “strategy chat” with more than 40 far-right trolls, one user who tried to create a new Twitter account to spread disinformation ahead of Tuesday’s midterms elections described how he had hit an immediate roadblock: Twitter banned him for deliberately giving out the wrong election date.
“Were they really banning people for saying [vote on] November 7? Lol, whoops,” the user, whose name was a racist joke about Native Americans, wrote. “Maybe that’s what got me shadowbanned.”
The remark, seen by NBC News in a closed chat room used for planning and executing misinformation efforts, suggested that the changes that Twitter has undertaken in the past two years to avoid a repeat of the 2016 U.S. election may be working. Two years ago, the company did little to police misinformation and allowed a Russian influence campaign and politically motivated trolls to thrive.
Nina Jankowicz, a global fellow who specializes in disinformation at the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute, a research center that studies Russia, called Twitter’s automated troll enforcement “the type of proactive behavior we need to see more of” from social media companies.
“Particularly, it’s interesting to see they’re looking to see efforts around voter suppression — something we’ve seen a lot in the past on social media platforms before election day,” Jankowicz said. “It’s a good use of [artificial intelligence], and I wish Facebook would do more about it.”
