Welcome to our first ever product update! We have been hard at work building new tools to fight the trolls and bots on social media. Here’s what we’ve just launched:
Totally Revamped Design and Interface
We have totally transformed Moderate’s user interface, making it more intuitive and easy to use! We particularly improved the way Moderate presents replies by giving more context, allowing you to better recognize negative interactions.
Here's what the new dashboard looks like, simulating Bill Gates on Twitter.
We have added an analytics section that gives you a good view of the health of your Twitter mentions. These stats include:
- The number of Twitter mentions that Moderate has analyzed
- The number of negative interactions identified by Moderate, with a graph showing the number over time
- The number of Twitter accounts you have muted
- The number of Twitter accounts you have blocked
We added a moderation management section, making it easy to see and manage the accounts you’ve previously muted and blocked. This was one of the biggest feature requests we received and we will be adding more features to this section soon.
Stronger, More Accurate Queue Algorithm
We have also improved our queue algorithm, so that we can show you the tweets with the highest moderation priority. We have also added the ability to sort by priority, or by most recent, giving you a bit more control over how you Moderate.
Three New AI Models, New Behavior Classifiers
We have developed three new AI models to classify new behaviors that we previously didn’t cover, with many more in the pipeline. One of these models, which became a priority for us at Moderate, was to target tweets associated with racist behaviors, which are now more accurately detected by Moderate. These new models should make Moderate far more effective, so you are more able to combat these negative behaviors from one place, saving you time (and mental strain).
That about wraps it up for our first update blog. We are still actively changing things, and open to any feedback, so please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the changes are now live on the current build of Moderate, so feel free to test them out and see if they make your life any easier. Thanks!
