Twitter reviews policies around permanent user bans



Twitter Inc is reviewing its programs around permanently banning druggies, conceivably bringing its content temperance in line with Elon Musk’s vision for the social media platform, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

Twitter has been exploring if there are other content temperance tools that could replace a ban, its harshest penalty for violating rules, the review said, citing multiple people familiar with the situation.

Back in May, shortly after inking a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter, Musk had pledged changes to the social media platform’s content temperance practices.

Musk, who calls himself a free speech absolutist, had also said he’d reverse Twitter’s ban on former US chairman Donald Trump.

Still, the FT report said any policy change would be doubtful to pave the way for Trump’s return to the platform since Twitter isn’t considering reversing bans issued for violating its policy against inciting violence.

workers are looking at areas where they feel Twitter may have banned users for lower offenses, similar to participating in deceiving information, the report added.

Twitter confined Kanye West’s account over the weekend, saying it removed posts by the rapper that online druggies condemned as anti-Semitic.

Twitter and representatives for Donald Trump didn’t incontinently respond to Reuters ’ requests for comment.
