11:45 pm
bullying. af everything they did was too narrow. too high a bar when they would start punishing users acting inappropriately. now they're lowering the bar which a lot of us are very happy about. essentially what is going to happen now it is going to be a lot easier when you flag something that is bad on twitter, they rely heavily upon us telling them when things are bad. they will act more quickly. they will take things into account that are, that are bad like harassment, if you are a publishing people's information on line a very popular thing to do to shame them t if you are breaking any of twitter's approximately sees. they're going to start going after people. and they're going to do stuff like, locking the account so you can't get back into them. forcing you to delete the tweets if you are doing something bad. then one of the other things starting to use an algorithm that will help people targeted by large groups of people to stop getting as many harassing tweets. a lot of poz nif news who have been on the bad side of twitter

11:47 pm
with it because it is impossible to track these people down. >> exactly. talking 500 million tweets sent out each day. how can twitter keep up with the abuse and how realistic is it that those trolls can be stopped? >> look. part of the internet. always been a part of the internet. one of the things that is fascinating is that this is part of that larger group effort that is happening with facebook, twitter, and bunch of people to tripe to poli try to police some of the stuff the we talked a lot on cnet.com. it relies on us the users to flag these things. say that people are acting badly. you have to flag every one of the tweets. don't use an algorithm. size of their endorsement teams. the speed at which enforcement teams work. they can't trust the computer to tell the nuances of what its good and bad. it will be really interesting to see how it plays out. odds are as we are talking about it today a lot more people complaining which is fran like a good thing for twitter.
11:48 pm
gets rid of a lot of the bad stuff. they're going to probably have to beef up enforcement teams. hire more people. facebook is doing this too. it's a trend that is really fascinating. >> yeah, i must admit that, you know, thament the, when you go through the reporting of this. it is easier in the end to mute them or block them which is exactly what i do. when somebody is causing trouble out there. thank you, many thanks, ian sherr. for talk with us. appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> hollywood actor ben affleck says he regrets acting a documentary show to hide his connection to a slave owning ancestor. his ancestry was trace ford "finding your roots" which aired last year. a show in which celebrities and high profile people discover details about their family background. in the segment he said, i didn't want any television show about my family to include a guy who owned slaves. i was embarrassed. i regret my initial thoughts
