Twitter’s new rules - Talk Trash About Someone and get your account Suspended


Twitter announced an update to its rules that clarify what the social media company considers "abusive behavior and hateful conduct."
Megan Cristina, Twitter's director of Trust and Safety, made the announcement Tuesday in a post that said the company will not tolerate behavior designed to harass, intimidate or silence another user's voice through fear.

"As always, we embrace and encourage diverse opinions and beliefs — but we will continue to take action on accounts that cross the line into abuse," Cristina wrote. 
The updated rules explicitly state that users cannot promote violence or directly attack and threaten people on the basis of their race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. Accounts that violate this and other rules may be immediately suspended.
The update is the latest in a series of revisions of Twitter's much criticized abuse policy. In February, Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter, wrote in an internal memo that he was "frankly ashamed" of how the company dealt with trolls and harassment on its platform.
In March 2015, Twitter provided users with new tools for reporting and blocking abusive tweets, including a "quality" filter that can remove threatening comments from a person's timeline. That feature, however, was available only to verified users.
In April, the company changed its policy to prohibit acts that promote violence against others. In the past, it previously only banned direct and specific threats.
The newest addition to the rules were underwhelming to some who argued on Twitter that the company doesn't do enough to enforce them, didn't make a substantial change or remains tone deaf in the way it treats the issue of cyber harassment, bullying and violence.
