Discord acquires Sentropy to battle online abuse and harassment

By Eleanor Escalante Published Jul 14, 2021 7:22 pm

Sentropy has announced that it will now be joining messaging platform Discord to combat hate and abuse on the internet. 

The deal will mainly employ Sentropy in expanding Discord’s Trust and Safety capabilities for the latter’s 150 million active monthly users.

Furthermore, Sentropy will help Discord “decide how we can most effectively share with the rest of the Internet the best practices, technology, and tools that we’ve developed to protect our own communities,” co-founder and chief executive officer John Redgrave said in a blog post on Medium.

Following the acquisition, independent tools of Sentropy will no longer be available starting with Protect, which shut down last July 1, and soon its Detect and Defend, which will be of service through Sept. 30, 2021.

Sentropy Protect, which was released earlier this year, pre-moderates the Twitter feed of users by removing abusive content so users would not see them.
