Twitter informs about its latest ratification move in which it would categorize and “deprioritize ” tweets from officials and politicians which violate its rules – a potential move hitting the gigantic output of US President Donald Trump.
The new policy allows Twitter to take move against rule violating comments on the short-messaging service while preparing messages and declarations that are important for the public controversy.
In these cases, users will see a notification about tweeter post which breaches and must then tap or click through to see the message.
According to a statement of the safety team of Twitter, “ it will take steps to make sure the tweet is not algorithmically elevated on our service, to strike the right balance between enabling free expression, fostering accountability, and reducing the potential harm caused by these tweets”.
The company said, “in the past, we’ve allowed certain tweets that violated our rules to remain on Twitter because they were in the public’s interest, but it wasn’t clear when and how we made those determinations ”.
He also added, “ to fix that, we’re introducing a new notice that will provide additional clarity in these situations, and sharing more on when and why we’ll use it.”
Twitter informs it expected these cases to be “rare” and the latest policy would only apply to check the political candidates and government officials with more than 100,000 followers. It will not affect tweets sent earlier to the declaration.
Twitter can potentially remove misleading tweets and prevent the users to post deceptive or vicious comments, but has also insisted on permitting matters “ serving the public conversation”.
