Google, Twitter and More: Takedowns, Tools and Speech
Monday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
Companies are faced with complicated decisions about content, access, and speech and there’s not a lot of help to figure it all out. When are current events too violent? When do posts cross the line and who should be the deciders? What’s the right balance between takedowns and user tools? What should you consider when writing rules and building tools for your company? And how should users be able to get their voice heard when they think content should be taken down or put back up? Join content experts from Google, the startup community, and the ACLU's Nicole Ozer to discuss what’s happening now and how to build for the future.
