This new machine-learning algorithm can detect cyber-bullying on Twitter.

Researchers have recently published a study in the Transactions on the Web (TWEB) that focused on analyzing the behavioral patterns concerning offensive accounts along with their differences from others.

According to Jeremy Blackburn, a study researcher at Binghamton University, US:

Capture

Then, they conducted sentiment analysis and natural language processing on many tweets. They also analyzed the social network to find out the links between its users.

Their algorithms were developed to classify automatically two particular types of abusive online behavior such as cyber-aggression and cyber-bullying.

The new algorithms can pinpoint abusive Twitter accounts who perform harassing behaviors such as making racist remarks or sending death threats. The accuracy of the new machine learning initiative can reach up to 90%.

Cyber-bullying has been one of the major problems that several social media platforms need to deal with to protect the personal rights of users.
