Surprising conclusions from Twitter on a recent controversy about a bias of their image cropping algorithm towards white people and women.

We considered the tradeoffs between the speed and consistency of automated cropping with the potential risks we saw in this research. One of our conclusions is that not everything on Twitter is a good candidate for an algorithm, and in this case, how to crop an image is a decision best made by people.
