    Hi,

    Detecting the offensive language should be doable and you have at least two approaches:
    • Either you have a collection of previously collected and labeled tweets (offensive/not offensive) and train a classifier 
    or
    As an idea how you can start building something like that, here is a recent research paper on exactly that topic:

    Best,
