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.” ___

Children, Dad, and Family: Our Family To everyone who has left the page in the past few days over my comment of: “This is what happens when you don’t beat your kids” in my last viral video I say this..... How is it that people such as you can say you are leaving due to my in your opinion “child abuse” comments and then turn around and wish assault, rape, and sodomy on my children as you are leaving? It’s funny to me that the people that preach tolerance and friendship with your children instead of being their ACTUAL parent are the first to wish harm on others, and be the most intolerant of any ideas other than their own. You see while the rest of the world is worried about what bathroom their kids are gonna use, teaching that feelings matter more than hard work-discipline, and that if you whine hard-long enough you’ll get your way..... I’m more concerned about teaching my children how to be actual adults and prepare them for this cold, hard, and unforgiving thing called LIFE! One thing I also teach my kids...is that there are lines in which you do not cross. Wishing harm on children is one of those lines...maybe you should try to be an ACTUAL parent and remember what that ACTUALLY means. I’m not perfect, I’m not always right, and I don’t expect you to agree with me always.... But I will be the first one to protect your children and especially mine from harm...... So what do you call people that say they are mad about something, but then wish worse on you? Hypocrisy? Nope....that’s just American Logic in 2018👍🏻 RANT OVER! -Graham🇺🇸 *PS......to All the people that left: Good Riddance, I never wanted people like you here anyway. children dad daughter son real

We already have a system in place to stop the violent actions of the intolerant. They’re called laws against murder and assault. We don’t need to further extend a policy of “intolerance” requiring shutting people down or justifying attacking them because of their “unacceptable” views.</p> Calling people out for their bullshit works infinitely better than constantly trying to shut them down. All you do then is convince them that they are martyrs and if they’re being persecuted for their beliefs they must be right. But if you actually call out the flaws in their argument, even if you don’t change *their* mind, you may sway someone who was considering their point of view before.
