Social Media Sites Aim to Screen Content
In a time of fake news and hateful messages being spread online, Twitter and other social media sites are aiming to find out the best way to filter content so that these words cannot be sent out. Jennifer Grygiel, a social media expert within the Newhouse School, spoke with the Associated Press about these attempts, and how they may be harder to introduce than thought.
“The tech is not good enough because humans are really smart, and they will learn how to maneuver around the machines,” Grygiel said. “It’s getting better, but it’s not there yet.”
