Twitter's Jack Dorsey promises changes to anti-harassment policies after #WomenBoycottTwitter
Earlier this week, Twitter made the awful decision to suspend actress Rose McGowan after she spoke out against serial sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein and told Ben Affleck to "fuck off" for enabling him. In the case of McGowan, her Twitter account was suspended after she accused film producer Harvey Weinstein - which in turn caused a lot of outrage on the microblogging service.
The CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey has laid out plans to introduce a set of "aggressive" new rules to protect users on the social media platform.
"New rules around: unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorifies violence", will be some of the changes Twitter makes to its Anti-abuse policy.
Many of her supporters said that her comments did not warrant the action the site took and pointed out that US President Donald Trump is allowed to continue bashing people on the same platform. However, the Friday protest had shown that users believe the company was still not doing enough, he said.
Mr Dorsey said Twitter was reconsidering its verification policies as well. "We stand with the fearless women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices". He said the changes would start going into effect next week and that the company would provide more details then as well.
"We see voices being silenced on Twitter every day", he tweeted. The senate panel's top Democrat, Mark Warner, said this month that social media companies did not initially take the threat of Russian interference seriously enough. Users have debated the company's decision not to suspend U.S. president Donald Trump after tweets that they argue violate the platform's terms of service.
Earlier this year, Twitter rolled out new tools preventing serial abusers from creating new accounts, a new "safe search" function and blocking potentially abusive and "low-quality" tweets from appearing in conversations.
