Twitter will Soon Tell Users when It Removed Tweets for Violating Content Policies

Twitter says it’s implementing a change to how it deals with tweets that violate its content guidelines and will also hide reported tweets…

Social microblog Twitter has announced it will make changes to how it deals with reported content. And, it comes in two parts that users should welcome.

Twitter to Show Tweets Removed over Policy Violations

Twitter says it’s gotten a lot of feedback about how people feel about seeing tweets that have been reported. Also, it’s going to clearly label any tweets which have been taken down:

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

The company states that it’s found users don’t always understand why content is removed from its platform. Additionally, the microblog says that after someone reports a tweet for violating a policy, it’s still viewable by tapping on a “View”option.

The changes will take effect over the next few weeks on the web and mobile apps.
