Inside Tech's Reckoning

March 1, 2018

Twitter is asking the public to help it evaluate how toxic the social media platform really is. The announcement comes as Twitter, and other social platforms, are facing backlash over the growth of fake news on its sites. CNET Senior Reporter Ben Fox Rubin explains what Twitter is really trying to accomplish with this announcement.

"I feel like this is their 500th mea culpa," said Rubin. "This to me feels they are at least trying to do a little more this time."

In a series of tweets Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said he is committing the company, "to hold ourselves accountable towards progress."
