This Non-Profit Was Sued By Elon Musk’s X After It Exposed Hate Speech

According to The Centre for Countering Digital Hate, hate speech is still rife on the messaging platform formerly known as Twitter.

The CCDH claimed on Wednesday that despite being informed that the content violates the organization’s current policies against hateful behaviour, X continues to leave offensive posts up.

The CCDH report was released a little over a month after X sued the nonprofit organisation on claims that some of the organization’s earlier research was based on dishonest techniques, including the unauthorised scraping of Twitter data.

Imran Ahmed, CEO of CCDH, said the organisation “just went in and had a look” rather than using data-scraping technologies to do its most recent research. However, he declined to comment on the specifics of the complaint.

For this research, the CCDH gathered 300 postings with inflammatory content from 100 accounts. These posts included calls to “stop race mixing” and assertions that Black people are inherently violent. About 140 of the 300 entries had antisemitic material in them, such as Nazi insignia graphics, remarks denying the Holocaust, and notes endorsing Jewish conspiracy theories.
