Hi Deborah: I work at FB and brought this to the attention of someone internally.
Brad Cook

Thank you, Brad. I will update the story to reflect your kind action. Some thoughts:

  1. Add a piece of code to your suspend-account algorithm that would see a #MeToo hashtag and treat it with algorithmic compassion.
  2. When you suspend an account, please give the person whose account has been suspended an email address or phone number to talk to an actual human. This is a case where customer support would have been a less disturbing user experience.

But again, thank you for your swift attention to this matter. If I may ask, how did you come across this story? Just curious.

Like what you read? Give Deborah Copaken a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
