“The improvement stems from the pioneering combination of technology and content moderation by a dedicated investigations team used to identify videos that violate policies. To better enforce these policies, moderators also receive regular training to identify content featuring appropriation, slurs, and bullying,” the statement said.


In addition to this, the video-sharing platform, which has been the victim of several bans in Pakistan, is currently blocked nationwide by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
