Complex, Memes, and Twitter: TECH 'CONVERSATION HEALTH' July 30 |Twitter partners with academic researchers to study user interactions and discourse on the social platform. Twitter is turning to academic researchers to find ways in which the social platform can improve the ‘conversational health’ amongst its users. The initiative is a part of Twitter’s mission to maintain social relevance, as the platform reports it has lost 1 million users. ___ Back in March, Twitter called researchers for proposals as to how the platform could watch the types and tone of conversations between users. Over 230 proposals were reviewed by a variety of Twitter employees, and the company has decided on two research teams to tackle two different issues. ___ The first team, led by researchers from Leiden University, will handle echo chambers and uncivil discourse. The team will be measuring how much users interact and will create an algorithm that can distinguish between uncivilly and tolerance. ___ The second team, led by researchers at the University of Oxford and the University of Amsterdam, will look at interactions and distressing prejudice. Their project will look at how Twitter users treat (or mistreat) prejudice and discrimination when interacting with accounts of diverse viewpoints. ___ Twitter said in a statement: - "When the communication between groups contains more positive sentiments, cooperative emotions, and more complex thinking and reasoning from multiple perspectives, prejudice is reduced and relations can improve.” ___
