Counter Speech on Twitter

Discussing CounterSpeech on Social Media on Twitter

Yesterday, between 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm, Centre for Social Research, in association with Twitter India, carried out a Tweetchat #TweeSurfing. We had a fantastic lineup of panelists, and the topic of the chat was “Counterspeech on Social Media”.

Our panelists this time around were a diverse range of personalities, from various locations- Breakthrough US, Anshul Tiwari (Youth Ki Awaaz), Ravi Karkara (UN Women), Shruti Kapoor (Founder of Sayfty), Feminism in India and Saikat Datta (journalist).

The TweetChat was very well recieved, as shown by these statistics


This is in tune with our campaign #SochKeBol #सोचकेबोल for #16DaysofActivism, which aims to generate awareness regarding online safety and counterspeech, and curbing online abuse and hate speech. Do join in our competition regarding the same, and spread the word on online safety!
