Twitter rules are now easier to understand
Del Harvey, VP, Trust and Safety, mentioned in a blogpost on Friday, 7th June that adding rules and updating old ones made it confusing and difficult to understand.
The refreshed rule page contains more information like step-by-step instructions on how to report and details about what happens after you report.
The rules listed under each category explains itself now in 280 characters or less describing clearly as to what is not allowed on Twitter. They have gone from 2500 words to 600 words explaining the rules precisely.
Each category is further divided into more sub-categories explaining the rules. Those sub-categories are further explained in the ‘Learn More’ tab.
For example, new categories like safety, privacy and authenticity means the rules are organized thematically and one can find the information they are looking for more quickly
Del Harvey states, “We’re working to make sure every rule has its own help page with more detailed information and relevant resources, with abuse and harassment, hateful conduct, suicide or self-harm, and copyright being next on our list to update.”
