On Thursday, Twitter refreshes its rules and made its rules more simple and easier to understand. Twitter also organized rules into category of safety, privacy and authenticity, cutting its rules from 2,500 to under 600. Twitter also added new guidelines for election transparency, platform misuse and spam.
The Twitter Safety account tweeted. “We heard you, ours weren’t. We updated, reordered, and shortened them, so you can know what’s not allowed on Twitter. Click through this thread for all our rules, and read our blog to learn more.”
The platform is working to ensure each rule has a help page with detailed information and resources listed on it. Twitter adds step-by-step instructions for reporting content that violates its rules. It also plans to add separate support pages, to provide more detailed and relevant resources.
