    Social Items



Twitter has brought about a change in its rules that will restrict users from spreading hate speech and sharing violent content. In its new policy, Twitter is going to ban links to content that is violent or promotes hate. 


Although Twitter already had rules against hateful and violent tweets, its policy didn't extend to linked content. This allowed users to skirt the social media company's policies by linking to content that they couldn't post directly on the platform, hence successfully achieving their goal. 


Now as a result of Twitter's updated link policy, the company has made it clear that it may  straightaway block any URLs to hateful and violent content and also suspend accounts that are involved in sharing these types of links. 

 
Twitter released its statement about the new policy today and added that the action will start being taken 30th of July onwards.
