Hate speech surges on Twitter

(CNN) -- New Twitter owner Elon Musk declared last month that "hate speech impressions" had dramatically fallen on the platform since he took over.

It was a remarkable claim, given that Musk has executed mass layoffs and chased away hundreds of employees, draining the company of much-needed resources to enforce content moderation policies, which the billionaire has also publicly criticized.

On Friday, two watchdog groups published research that indicated Musk's claim simply did not hold water, offering one of the clearest pictures to date of the surging tide of hate speech on the platform.

The Center for Countering Digital Hate and Anti-Defamation League both said in reports that the volume of hate speech on Twitter has grown dramatically under Musk's stewardship.

Specifically, the Center for Countering Digital Hate said the daily use of the n-word under Musk is triple the 2022 average and the use of slurs against gay men and trans persons are up 58% and 62%, respectively.

And the Anti-Defamation League said in a separate report that its data shows "both an increase in antisemitic content on the platform and a decrease in the moderation of antisemitic posts."

Musk has repeatedly said that he wants to roll back many of the content moderation policies that were in place before he took over the company and has signaled he only wants speech prohibited when it incites violence or violates the law.

The billionaire has already rolled back Twitter's previous Covid misinformation rules and said he plans to grant "general amnesty" to people who were previously banned for violating Twitter rules.

"These changes are already affecting the proliferation of hate on Twitter, and the return of extremists of all kinds to the platform has the potential to supercharge the spread of extremist content and disinformation," the Anti-Defamation League said. "This may also lead to increased harassment of users."

It's giving "stop testing and covid cases will go down".

But don't worry, guys. Musk is just a centrist 👍 working to make sure both sides (normal people and Nazis) get a voice 👍

The best thing that could happen is for Twitter to go down in flames. Boycott it, hope it crashes, whatever. It's about to become 4chan so if we can burn it down before that happens (and at the same time poke a hole in this cumstain's ego and net worth) it'd be lovely
