Twitter, which some people use to abuse, harass and manipulate others, is soliciting proposals from the public to help the social network capture, measure and evaluate healthy interactions on the platform.
This is part of Twitter’s commitment “to help increase the collective health, openness, and civility of public conversation,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted earlier this morning.
Twitter did not “fully predict or understand the real-world consequences” of instant, public and global conversations, Dorsey tweeted.
In an effort to combat these unhealthy interactions, he said, Twitter is looking to build a framework to encourage healthy interactions.
The idea to measure healthy interactions came from some conversations with team members from non-profit research organization Cortico.
“They came up with four indicators: shared attention, shared reality, variety of opinion, and receptivity,” Dorsey tweeted.
