Twitter updated their rules and has made them refreshed, recognized for their users to understand easily on Friday. They divide rules into many categories.
Vice president of trust and safety Del Harvey, Twitter wrote in a blog post that, “We’re refreshing rule pages to have more information, including examples, step-by-step instructions about how to report, and details on what happens when we take action”.
Twitter cuts words from their official guidelines from 2500 to 600 words. Each element expresses what is acceptable to this platform and what is not. To make it simpler, they made different categories like privacy, authenticity, and safety. In the new categories, Twitter added rules which are related to relate to election integrity, platform manipulation, and even spam. There they also added how people could report content that violates its laws and what should they do when the company does decide to take action.
Every practice is described in 280 characters or less to give more light on the topic.
Harvey said,”As part of our continued push towards more transparency across every aspect of Twitter, we’re working to make sure every rule has its own help page with more detailed information and relevant resources, with abuse and harassment, hateful conduct, suicide or self-harm, and copyright being next on our list to update,”
She also said, “Our rules exist to help keep everyone using Twitter safe and ensure they can participate freely in the public conversation.
“Over time, we’ve added new rules and updated existing ones, but these changes eventually made our rules confusing and difficult to understand,”
