Twitter takes action against ‘hateful’ tweets, makes them less searchable


Twitter has announced the addition of publicly visible labels to Tweets that potentially violate its policies to let users know the company has limited their visibility.

The company sometimes restricts Tweets that violate its policies, making them harder to find or visible to fewer people.

The new labels will further clarify those functions, the Elon Musk-run company said.

Twitter said in a blog post late Monday, “Restricting access to Tweets, also known as visibility filtering, is one of our current enforcement actions, which allows us to move from a binary ‘leave up versus take down’ approach.” allows us to move forward.”

“However, like other social platforms, we have historically not been transparent about when we have taken this action,” it added.

Labels only apply at the “Tweet level” and will not affect a user’s account.

Tweets with the new label will be made less searchable on the platform.

“Additionally, we will not place ads next to content that we label,” the company said.

While these labels will initially only apply to a set of Tweets that potentially violate our hateful conduct policy, the company plans to expand these to other applicable policy areas in the coming months.

“Our mission at Twitter 2.0 is to promote and protect the public conversation. we believe Twitter Users have the right to express their opinions and views without fear of censorship,” said the micro-blogging platform.
