Watch Out, Trolls: Twitter Says These Four Things Will Change Today
Well, this article was actually yesterday, but it’s about time. New rules will reduce “hateful conduct and abusive behavior,” according to Twitter, and include:
- Hateful user names, display names, and bios can now get you suspended.
- Hateful imagery can get you suspended.
- Twitter accounts associated with hate groups or other groups that promote violence–both on and off the platform–can be suspended.
- Content that “glorifies violence or the perpetrators of a violent act” can be removed.
