Twitter is making improvements around reporting content issues including impersonation, self-harm and the sharing of private and confidential information. According to Tina Bhatnagar VP, User Services , Twitter, the changes will begin rolling out today and should reach all users in the coming weeks.
Over the last six months, in addition to the product changes, Twitter has overhauled how its reviews user reports about abuse. As an example, allowing bystanders to report abuse – which can now be done for reports of private information and impersonation as well - involved not only an update to Twitter's in-product reporting process, but significant changes to its tools, processes and staffing behind the scenes.
Overall, Twitter now reviews five times as many user reports as it did previously, Bhatnagar added.
Twitter is also beginning to add several new enforcement actions for use against accounts that violate its rules.
