A Twitter user conducted an interesting experiment to sniff out double standards in the site’s censorship policy concerning race.
The person wrote the same comment on two different accounts with only two words changed, then reported each for abusive behavior.
The first comment read: “I fucking hate white people and their inconsiderate asses for voting for Trump. Fuck you.”
The second: “I fucking hate black people and their inconsiderate asses for voting for Clinton. Fuck you.”
The first was found not to be in “violation of Twitter’s Rules regarding abusive behavior,” while the second resulted in the user’s account being banned.
Really makes you think.
