BREAKING: N Word Use Up 500% Following Elon Takeover
We’re almost so back.
From Business Insider:
After self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” Elon Musk closed the $44 billion deal on Twitter, anonymous accounts set about testing the limits of the social media platform’s moderation policies, The Washington Post reported.
The Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), a research group that analyzes social media content to predict emerging threats, said that use of the N-word on Twitter increased by nearly 500% in the 12 hours immediately after Musk’s deal was finalized.
The newspaper also noted that several online trolling accounts called on others to use racist language in the aftermath of the deal.
“Elon now controls twitter. Unleash the racial slurs. K—S AND N—–S,” said one account, using slurs for Jewish and Black people, per the outlet.
“I can freely express how much I hate n—–s … now, thank you elon,” another said, The Post reported.
Journalist David Leavitt also noticed an increase in accounts tweeting hate speech. He tweeted on Friday: “There’s a massive flood of literally hundreds of people each minute using the N-word and rampant hate speech happening on Twitter right now post Elon purchase.”
I am writing this as there was just a huge purge. Two of my accounts were banned. But the point is our energy is there. We took over and our presence was felt immediately.
