Twitter CEO Elon Musk said Thursday that he is defining hate speech on the platform based on the definitions that the platform used prior to Musk taking over.
Musk made the revelation in a tweet about how the company has cracked down on hate speech on the platform amid pressure from advertisers and left-wing activists.
“Hate speech impressions down by 1/3 from pre-spike levels,” Musk tweeted. “Congrats to Twitter team!”
“I have half a mind to wag my finger at the 1500 accounts that caused the spike, but I shall forebear,” Musk continued. “Reducing the max allowed tweets/day to a number below what a speed typist on meth could do was helpful.”
Musk responded to a question from DailyWire+ host Jordan Peterson about how he defines hate speech.
