Moral outrage shapes fundamental aspects of human social life and is now widespread on digital media and online social networks. How might these new technologies change the expression of moral outrage and its social consequences? Principles of reinforcement learning can usefully organize an investigation of digital outrage and its effects on social behavior. We used supervised deep learning to develop a digital outrage classifier that can identify expressions of moral outrage on social media with human-level accuracy.
