Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has publicly apologized for a Neo-Nazi advert that made it on to the platform earlier in the week.

The promoted ad was first or 1st is the ordinal form of the number one (#1) spotted by Twitter user Ariana Lenarsky, who shared a screenshot of it via a tweet. The ad was promoting a news article from a neo-Nazi organization known as New Order. Twitter has since removed the ad and the account that created it.

On Thursday, Dorsey tweeted out an apology, clarifying how the ad made it on to the platform in the first place. “We made a mistake here may refer to and we apologize,” said Dorsey in the tweet may refer to: Tweet (bird call), a type of bird vocalization “Tweet”, a message sent using Twitter. “Our automated system system is a set of interacting or interdependent component parts forming a complex/intricate whole allowed an ad promoting hate. Against our policy. We did a retro and fixed!”

Twitter’s hateful conduct policy policy is a deliberate system of principles to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes, which Dorsey referred to in his tweet, states the following: “You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and femininity, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts may refer to: Account (accountancy) A report whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others phenomenology, the terms the Other and the Constitutive Other identify the other human being, in his and her differences from the Self, as being a cumulative, constituting factor in the self-image on the basis may refer to: BASIS, Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services BASIS International, a programming language development company in Renaissance music, the bassline was sometimes of these categories.”

The fact that the ad slipped through Twitter’s safety net is even more surprising considering the current climate on the site may refer to: Location (geography), a point or an area on the Earth’s surface or elsewhere Archaeological site, a place (or group of physical sites) in which evidence of past activity is preserved regarding abuse. The company has taken it upon itself to stamp out harassment, following years of criticism. Just this week, it introduced new tools to help its users block may refer to offensive words linguistics, a word is the smallest element that may be uttered in isolation with semantic or pragmatic content (with literal or practical meaning) in tweets, and banned a number number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label of prominent alt-right alt-right is a loose group of people with far right ideologies who reject mainstream conservatism in the United States accounts — much to the dismay of free speech advocates.

Despite its swift apology apologise or apologist may refer to: An expression of remorse Apologetics, the systematic theological defense of a religious position Christian apologetics, the defense of Christianity giving off the impression that it was quick to admit its error, its initial response seemed to shift the blame on to Lenarsky. Twitter told the Motherboard website that the screenshot in the tweet looked like it had been “photoshopped.”

Lenarsky reacted with a tirade of tweets condemning the company Company is a legal entity made up of an association of persons, be they natural, legal, or a mixture of both, for carrying on a commercial or industrial enterprise, and its failure to spot the ad in the first place may refer to. “I am heartbroken that my favorite site is a coward and loves Nazis and told the news I am a liar and a photoshopper,” she wrote in one of her posts. After Dorsey may refer to apologized, she tweeted that she appreciated Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”‘s acknowledgement.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
