Twitter Trolling Becomes Harder With This Change of Policy

Twitter Will Publicly Shame You

Social media is full of trolls but Twitter is a cesspool of toxic insects that attack anything and everything,  It is a safe haven for toxic people but trolling on Twitter will be harder to do now when Twitter is changing some of its policy.

Over the years Twitter has been highly criticized for the way it handles trolls, and other people who spread hate, harass.  But since the start of 2017, Twitter has made efforts to deal with such issues. Through the policy update, rules changes, and better enforcement, the company is trying to create a safer space for all of its users.

In a recent blog post, Twitter confirmed some new changes to its policy of dealing with reported Tweets. Reported Tweets will be flagged to offer more transparency.  Moreover, those reported the Tweets will no longer see them.

Twitter will also publicly shame the Tweet by replacing the removed Tweet with a notice saying “This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter rules.”

Now, once we’ve required a Tweet to be deleted, we will display a notice stating that the Tweet is unavailable because it violated the Twitter Rules along with a link to the Rules and an article that provides more detail on how we enforce our rules. This notice will be displayed on both the account’s profile and the specific Tweet for 14 days after the Tweet is deleted. You’ll see this change rolling out to both the app and on Twitter.com in the coming weeks.”

Since last year the company has made over 100 various changes and adjustments to its policy. Further changes will be made based on community feedback. The company is also making efforts to make communications between users and Twitter.
