How Twitter Could Solve Its Censorship Problem
Twitter's filtering system has caused outrage amongst parts of the Twitter community.
Twitter responds that it must filter to protect against spam tweets, supposed Russian bots, vulgar language etc.
But there is a simple solution for Twitter to end the outrage over censorship.
Twitter should provide simple options for filters it uses, in the form of opt-ins.
Say, for example, Twitter filters along the following lines:
Whatever the filter, Twitter should give users the option to opt-in on generally filtered tweets. This way individuals can determine for themselves what is being filtered and determine for themselves what they want to be "protected" from with easily deigned opt-in and back-out features.
End of problem.
