Tweeting with consideration

We learned that: If prompted, 34% revised their initial reply or decided to not send their reply at all. After being prompted once, people composed, on average, 11% fewer offensive replies in the future. If prompted, people were less likely to receive harmful replies back.
While we’ve made significant improvements to the algorithms we use to detect potentially harmful Tweets, people will sometimes be prompted in error. We hope you understand no system will be able to do this perfectly and we believe the benefits of this prompt are valuable.
