Thrilled to be in Tunis for @rightscon! My events are on Friday and I‘m looking forward to running into many friends before that! Snuck a visit to Carthage ruins. Pervasive surveillance delande est. Unaccountable use of artificial intelligence delande est. #RightsCon 🤷‍♀️
Ahaha lack of edit button delanda est! And that phrase is practically the limit of my knowledge of Latin anyway, so I can’t claim that it was either the heat or the tiny phone keyboard at fault. 🤷‍♀️😬🤷‍♀️😬
At @Rightscon, I hear evolving and complex conversations among the community over time but feels to me that big tech has same framework, year-to-year: “We hear your concerns. We’re working on these difficult issues. Thank you for your feedback.” Do other #RightsCon folk disagree?

When your posts get taken down or your accounts get suspended, who will have your back—and who will leave you in the dark?

Today we launch “Who Has Your Back?” Censorship Edition 2019 at #RightsCon, assessing companies on content moderation policies. eff.org/wp/who-has-you…
First, the high scores. Only @reddit earned stars in every category, and @Apple and @github earned stars in five out of six categories.

If they can achieve this level of transparency and accountability, it’s reasonable to expect other companies to also meet that standard.
Of the 16 companies we assess, twelve publicly endorse the Santa Clara Principles on Transparency and Accountability in Content Moderation, indicating increasing industry buy-in to important standards of transparency, notice, and appeals. santaclaraprinciples.org
