Federal government to track political hate speech on Twitter


The federal government is reportedly spending close to $1 million to create an online database to track hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is said to be financing the project.

The web service will monitor suspicious memes and what the group considers false and misleading ideas.

The database will focus on political activity online to detect political smearing and other social pollution.
