Tracy Chou is an entrepreneur, software engineer, diversity advocate, and founder and CEO of Block Party.
Tracy Chou started Block Party, a company that targets online harassment by giving Twitter users more control over which tweets appear in their feed and mentions.
In an interview, she talks about how she hopes Block Party can fix some of the problems she’s experienced firsthand in the tech industry—including the sort of online harassment of which she has been a target.
