Twitter to publicly shame users for bad tweet

New Delhi: Twitter will now publicly shame users for bad tweet, stating that the tweet is unavailable because it violated the Twitter rules.

The micro-blogging platform in its blog wrote, “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.”

Twitter will also show a link to the rules and an article that provides more detail on how it enforces them.

“This notice will be displayed on both the account’s profile and the specific Tweet for 14 days after the Tweet is deleted,” Twitter said

It is bringing the new change to both the app and on Twitter.com in the coming weeks.

Twitter said that it has also got feedback that users don’t want to continue seeing tweets they have reported. Hence, once a user has reported a Tweet, it will be hidden behind a notice like the one below. “If there’s a need to see the Tweet you reported, you can tap the notice to view it,” Twitter said.

The micro-blogging platform said that since early 2017, it has shipped more than 100 changes or experiments, made more than a dozen policy updates, expanded our teams and enforcement – all to continue building a safer Twitter.

“We’ve updated our rules with more details and examples to make them easier to understand, improved communication to people who break our rules so they know which Tweet caused the issue and which rule it broke, and notify people with our apps about the reports they file,” it wrote in the blog.
