Hand it to the Anti-Defamation League. There isn’t a single other organization out there that can declare something as fact, with no evidence, and have every major news organization repeat it verbatim, no questions asked.
The New York Times on Friday published the headline, “Hate Speech’s Rise on Twitter Is Unprecedented, Researchers Find.” That frightful claim was backed up, in large part, by none other than the leftist ADL, which is wildly successful in convincing anyone who will listen that Nazis are lurking in every American household.
“The shift in speech is just the tip of a set of changes on the service under Mr. Musk,” the article read, referring to Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk. “Accounts that Twitter used to regularly remove — such as those that identify as part of the Islamic State, which were banned after the U.S. government classified ISIS as a terror group — have come roaring back. Accounts associated with QAnon, a vast far-right conspiracy theory, have paid for and received verified status on Twitter, giving them a sheen of legitimacy.”
Examples of “hate speech” that has supposedly seen an increase under Twitter’s new ownership include “slurs against Black Americans,” “slurs against gay men,” and “antisemitic posts referring to Jews or Judaism.” The Times attributed the findings to the ADL, the Center for Countering Digital Hate, “and other groups that study online platforms.” The report conceded that the alleged incidents of hate speech are “relatively small,” but nonetheless cited the claim by the “researchers” that “the increases were atypically high.”
There’s no public information on the Center for Countering Digital Hate’s website to correspond with what was asserted in the Times article and I don’t know what “other groups” the paper...

Twitter doesn’t “create” anything.
Whatta ‘bout slurs against commie, fascist ‘Rats?
What is the agreed upon definition of hate speech?
Never had a Twitter account, but I have to admit, it’s getting quite entertaining to mock such a large quadrant of karens.
Putting the “D” in delusional. Or is it dullards. Or dip 💩s
Are you series? 🤡
The ADL is just a race hustling grift. If Elon Musk gave them enough money they’d shut up no different than BLM or any other bunch of extortionists.
Yes, this is hugh, in my opinion.
Hate Speech’s Rise on Twitter
And let me guess
the Anti-Defamation League
And said so.
Sounds like ADL hate speech.
Seems to me there’s less Ad Hominem against conservatives now at Twitter where once you’d see more immediate deflections from the topic and going right after the person in the opening tweet.
How is that creating more hate?
And in the end, how do they objectively quantify “hate” when it’s subjective in nature?
Musk, like Trump, didn’t create the hate, he just revealed it.
Is the New York Times an Unregistered Lobbying Firm for Far Left Politicians?

If this doesn’t apply here, where does it apply?:

Hate speech is free speech
These Twitter people are a cult… Twitter is an obsession, almost like a religion. Keep them away from guns and post offices. Maybe they should find meaningful employment.
What so-called “progressives”, commies, poofters, gendertwits and race grievance pimps do not like is “hate”.
That sounds about right.
ON The ONE SIDE:
Ah; YES, LET THE HATE FLOW THROUGH YOU!
ON THE OTHER SIDE:
What; ARE YOU SOME KIND OF IDIOT?
NOBODY BELIEVES THAT PROG/LIB/FASCIST BULLCRAP ANYMORE!
