Periscope is taking a democratic approach to the punishment of abusive commentators, assembling a makeshift social media jury to deal with possible abuse.
If you don’t want to be subject to Periscope justice, broadcasters can turn off moderated comments through the settings tab. As well, users have the right to opt out of voting on potentially abusive comments.
“There are no silver bullets, but we’re committed to developing tools to keep Periscope a safe and open place for people to connect in real-time,” reads Periscope’s blog post. “We look forward to working closely with you and everyone else in the community to improve comment moderation.”
