Twitter Rules to make the social network a safer place



Twitter has gone public about progress in its approach to make the social network a safer place, and it is opening up its safety calendar of the upcoming changes to the Twitter Rules.

The Twitter Rules is based on the rights that people should have the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers. But to protect the experience and safety of people who use Twitter, there are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that it allow.

This is the first time Twitter has shared this level of visibility into its work, and how they communicate with people who violate them, and how its enforcement processes work.

While Twitter has been under fire for allowing abusive and hateful behavior on its platform, the company going forward has pledged to real-time updates about its progress on thwarting trolls.

And the company has handed its Trust and Safety Council a list of new rules it plans to enforce to curb abuse. Twitter also confirmed that it will update the way it reviews reports from people who say they witness violations.

It urges all users to adhere to the policies set forth in the Twitter Rules, as failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s).
