Activist spray-paints hateful tweets on Twitter’s doorstep


For six months, Shahak Shapira reported around 150 hateful comments to Facebook and 300 hateful tweets to Twitter. Facebook removed 80% of the hateful comments, while Twitter didn’t remove any.

So he decided to bring the tweets to Twitter’s doorstep. Literally.

He picked 30 tweets, went to Twitter’s offices in Hamburg, and spray-painted them on the ground with chalk in the middle of the night.

By 10 AM the next morning, Twitter still hadn’t cleaned them up.
