Our ongoing commitment to combat antisemitism on X

Friday, 8 September 2023

Our teams at X constantly listen to feedback from users and maintain continuous dialogue with outside organizations to ensure our policies and enforcement balance free expression with platform safety. We firmly believe these two values can coexist, and we work tirelessly to achieve that goal.

As part of this, we are committed to combating hatred, prejudice and intolerance – particularly when they are directed at marginalized and persecuted groups. That means taking proportionate action on content that violates our Rules. And today we wanted to share the real progress we’re making in combating antisemitism on X.

  • Our longstanding policies cover a wide range of behavior that targets an individual or group of people with abuse based on their perceived or real membership in any protected category.
  • Earlier this year we expanded our Violent & Hateful Entities policy, refreshed our policies around Violent Speech to reflect our zero tolerance approach and updated our Abusive Behavior policy to more clearly prohibit targeted harassment.
  • On an ongoing basis, we add new slurs, harmful terms and phrases to our operational handbook and proactive heuristics to ensure we’re capturing the evolving landscape and use of language to target members of protected categories, including members of the Jewish community.
  • We continuously improve our automated enforcement to more quickly identify and remediate instances of hateful conduct (including antisemitic conduct) on the platform by expanding the application of our machine learning models. 
  • We actively provide ongoing training support and mandatory refresher requirements for our frontline moderators to educate them about different types of antisemitic hate speech and how they may manifest on X. 

Through our policies and enforcement, active training of agents, and working alongside our partners and users, X is committed to combating antisemitism on our platform. Our work is ongoing and we’ll continue to make investments in this area and keep our community updated on our progress.
