Apres vous Monsieur
I asked first, but do you really think I would have done if I didn't have them?

That 'hate speech' graph has about as much context and authorial independence as Trump's Sharpie hurricane diagram.

Excellent research.

Do you have any data that refutes it?
Is that real data or something Twitter have just put up to get some new advertisers in? It is a business after all that wants to make money. Also why believe this data when in the last couple years the data/graphs shown for Covid for example were always questioned? Please note, When it comes to Twitter Ive no idea about it, Never have used it and only know about in genral terms.

Believe what you want to believe. I can only go by what the owner of the company claims. You know, the same as any other company. Unless you're inferring the owners of all companies are liars.

Musk hasn't presented any data.

There is context that strongly suggests it's bunkum.
Like Twitter's monitoring capacity being severely reduced hence 'verified' accounts being fake and a free for all on misinformation in the last week or so.
Copyright breaches not being spotted.

Who is monitoring this 'hate speech'?
How is it defined?
How is it being sampled?
Is the statistical method consistent with what went before?
Is the y axis numerical or logarithmic?
Because, graphically, the end point of Elon's own line doesn't look anything like a third down on the pre-spike level (even less so if it wasn't for that fortuitous dip right at the end prior to which 'hate speech' seemed to be rising for a 5 day stretch).

Well unless you have data (or reference to it) that refutes it, then you can be nothing other than just sceptical. A bit like me when I hear stuff that comes out of Sir Keith's mouth.
