Twitter moves to curb hate speech based on religion

WASHINGTON – Twitter is moving to filter out inappropriate content based on religion as part of its effort to curb hate speech.

In a policy update Tuesday, Twitter said it would take down “dehumanizing language” that targets specific religious groups.

Examples shown by Twitter that would be removed would be description of a members of a religion as “disgusting” or “filthy animals.”

“After months of conversations and feedback from the public, external experts and our own teams, we’re expanding our rules against hateful conduct to include language that dehumanizes others on the basis of religion,” the Twitter safety team wrote.
