Twitter has a new policy on suspending accounts
Twitter announced that starting from the first of February, users of the social networking platform will be able to appeal the suspension of their account on the site and be evaluated according to the new criteria in order to reactivate the account.
Under the new standards, which followed billionaire Elon Musk's purchase of the company in October, accounts on Twitter will only be suspended in the case of severe or persistent and repeated violations of the platform's policies.
Severe violations include engaging in illegal content or activity, inciting or threatening violence or harm, engaging in targeted harassment of other users, and more.
From now on, Twitter said it would take less drastic action than suspending an account, such as limiting the reach of tweets that violate its policies or requiring users to remove tweets before continuing to use the account. Last December, Musk was criticized for suspending the accounts of several journalists due to the controversy over the publication of public data on the billionaire's plane. Still, he reactivated the charges at a later time.
