Reuters, Google’s Jigsaw, and Twitter team up on tool to limit “harassment” towards journalists



The Thomson Reuters Foundation, Google’s Jigsaw, and Twitter have collaborated to create TRFilter, a new tool that allows journalists to collect and manage incidents of “online abuse and harassment.”

According to AdWeek, the tool “syncs with a journalist’s Twitter account and uses machine learning technology to automatically recognize and flag harmful comments, and it offers users the options to block, mute, or save comments at scale, without manually reviewing them.” TRFilter also allows the creation of reports that users can download and send to third parties, like law enforcement.

The tool, available only on Twitter, also allows users to block or mute the source of abuse, as well as hide their replies on tweets.
