Watch Out, Trolls: Twitter Says These Four Things Will Change Today

Posted by @DanHinmon, Dec 19, 2017

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.
