Twitter Laughs at Facebook Hate Speech: You Will Too!

Earlier today, Facebook users began reporting that questionnaires had been attached to innocuous posts, asking them if they considered the content of the posts to be "hate speech".

The spokesperson said the company was conducting an "internal test" in an attempt to understand "different types of speech, including speech we thought would not be hate".

2018 just hasn't been Facebook's year. How does Facebook define it? Where can the line be drawn? We expect to see a number of announcements related to News Feed, which Facebook is constantly tinkering with. Nowhere in the hate speech button portal was there an option to find the definition of hate speech. Yet the feedback options weren't quite clear - only stating "Hate Speech", "Test P1", "Test P2", and "Test P3". YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have been accused by conservative and right-leaning groups of censoring their speech.
