Users will be able to appeal Twitter account suspension
Starting February1, Twitter users will be able to appeal account suspensions and be examined using the social media platform’s revised reinstatement criteria, the company announced on Friday.
Twitter accounts will only be terminated under the new guidelines. These guidelines came after billionaire Elon Musk bought the firm in October, for serious or persistent infractions of the platform’s rules.
Severe policy breaches include, among other things, engaging in illegal content or behaviour, threatening or instigating harm or violence, and harassing other users specifically.
In place of suspending accounts, Twitter said it will now impose less harsh measures. Such measures included limiting the audience of messages that are against company regulations or requiring users to delete tweets before using the account again.
In response to a dispute over publishing open data on the billionaire’s plane, Musk was criticised for suspending the accounts of many journalists in December. The accounts were later restored by him.
