Twitter moves against ‘troll’ behaviour
Twitter is taking steps to deal with “troll” behaviour that “distort and detract” from the public conversation on the platform, changing how such tweets appear in public searches and conversations. The move is a global one, and is designed to deal with behaviour that doesn’t breach Twitter’s usage policies, but doesn’t add anything either. Twitter said it would also look at how these accounts interacted with and were linked to those users who violate Twitter’s rules. “Some of these accounts and tweets violate our policies, and, in those cases, we take action on them. “That means fewer people are seeing Tweets that disrupt their experience on Twitter,” the post said.
