Swipe Reich: Anti-Tinder for Anti-Nazis

Melissa Parker

Swipe Reich is a tool that uses the visual language of Tinder to make it easier to report harassment on Twitter.



Potential harassers will be flagged on Twitter based on certain search terms, like “heil hitler” and #1488 (a neo-nazi code word). Their info will be stored in a json file, and pulled up on a web application. Any users that are flagged as nazis will have their information Tweeted out by a bot so anyone who follows the bot will be notified and able to report the abuse.
