The two men met on their first day at work. They didn't know that a few years later they'd build their own social media platform.

"We were the only two black guys in there, and we were like, 'Hey, we'll be friends!'" said Terrell, who served as the platform's Global Head of Social & Editorial until last month. Mexora is a Series A startup that makes it easier for companies to build their data pipelines after Brown left Twitter.

They describe the platform as a real time platform that puts culture first The platform is expected to launch in a few weeks.

As Black creatives and technologists working in social media, they have watched as Black women, queer people and other diverse communities have powered new trends, only to be ignored. Black content creators have had their work stolen and earn less brand deals than white creators, according to studies.

I was just talking to Black female creators, talking to Black queer creators, and I was wondering how they made their money. Does any platform support you? Do you like the idea of spill?

It was important for the creators to have features from the start. Terrell refuses to call Spill a web3 company because he doesn't want to offend the creators behind the posts.

It is not a web 3 thing. Both crediting creators and setting up a model for us to compensate them automatically are possible with the use of the block chain technology. It is effective if they have a spill that goes viral. Spill hasn't decided what the revenue share will look like, or what method will be used to track how posts drive ad revenue, but he says that creators will get real cash in US dollars. Users won't be bombarded with the technology in the tech stack.

Users will be able to post "spills" on the live news feed. The phrase "spill the tea" is what they're called after. They have a kermit sipping tea meme on their website. A new feature called "tea parties" will allow users to host both online and in-app events, then get in-app bonuses to boost their posts. If you have been making and crushing it on Spill, we will give you these things.

Brown is extending the company's commitment to honor cultural production into the very fabric of the platform.

The first large language content moderation model using artificial intelligence will probably be built by people from the culture.

One study shows that African Americans are 1.5 times more likely to be flagged for hate speech than whites, while a second study shows that African Americans are 2.2 times more likely to be flagged for hate speech. It is not possible for an artificial intelligence to understand the cultural context in which a particular speech is being used. Maybe Brown can change that.

He said that things that will be deemed offensive will be more intentional. The platform that would not lend to creating a safe space for our users and our creators will be more accurate to catch.

There is a small team of under ten people and three advisors. Hive has had security issues when it comes to building products without a strong team. They are confident that they won't fall into the same trap.

Brown said, "You have John and MacGyver here!" Some of the largest and most successful campaigns in the world have been run by Poncho. He led social media marketing at HBO and his team won a Webby Award for best overall social presence. Since the advent and popularity of cloud computing, I have run some of the largest web scale services. This isn't the first rodeo we've done.

Users can reserve their handle and get updates before the platform launches.
