Twitter Update Rules Ahead of Boycott on Abuse

Twitter Update Rules Ahead of Boycott on Abuse
 
 

Twitter has just updated its rules one day ahead of the anti-troll boycott by UK users. Twitter has taken measures to prevent abusive and threatening tweets from appearing on its site.


The Internet may be a geek’s dream come true but it also has its downside. Bullying and badmouthing remain two of the excesses found online. Trolls may be dealt with via the simple dictum of “DFTT” which stands for “Don’t Feed the Trolls”. Yet when push comes to shove they have to be handled by other means than merely ignoring them.

Recently, there have been cases of what may be called the Stalker Syndrome on Twitter. Many female journalists have been threatened with rape and reprisal by bombing from terrorists and psychopathic minds. After a boycott by several people in the UK, the administration at Twitter finally decided to listen to the complaints. The safety features and precautions taken include simplification of the abuse reporting feature. The law may step in when such issues as bodily harm are involved.

Twitter has very categorically stated that it will show zero tolerance for abusive behavior of any sort. Various steps will be taken to ensure this action is followed through. It is willing to work in close coordination with the UK Safer Internet Center in order to help ordinary citizens stay secure in cyberspace.

The head honcho of Twitter UK, Tony Wang has offered his heartfelt apologies to those females threatened on Twitter. He says this is simply not acceptable and will be dealt with firmly. Twitter is going to get tough on these criminal elements. They pose a serious threat to the existence of a peaceful law-abiding society.  


Twitter UK announced in official blog today that, "We have updated the Twitter Rules to clarify that we do not tolerate abusive behaviour. We want people to feel safe on Twitter, and we want the Twitter Rules to send a clear message to anyone who thought that such behaviour was, or could ever be, acceptable."
