A new project is trying to track hateful users’ activity on Twitter
The Verge --------- As Twitter, like other social media companies, continues to deal with extremism on its platform, a new project is pledging to monitor how hateful users are behaving. A newly released tool called the Exploring Online Hate dashboard is a joint project from the New America Foundation and the Anti-Defamation League, the latter of which is dedicated to tracking hate groups.
