Elon Musk tweeted that “the rules of Twitter will evolve over time,” but added that the rules have not changed for now. A link was included. Twitter’s new owners have spoken in the past about how the platform will have a new moderation council with a different perspective, which will also decide who will be allowed back on the platform.
The billionaire’s tweet is interesting because it raises concerns about how content will be moderated on the platform after his acquisition. We are tweeting that we are stopping advertising on our platform. He also denied that the platform has seen an increase in hate speech in the past two weeks. Recent layoffs have also raised concerns about how Twitter handles content moderation. But Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, said that while the company was restricting access to content moderation tools for some team members, “the amount of inbound content moderation volume he could more than 80% of the population were unaffected by this access change.” “During this time, the amount of daily moderation we do remains constant,” he added to the thread.
The platform addresses hateful behavior based on religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, and more. Such content is not permitted on the platform. We also remove perpetrators of violent attacks and those promoting suicide, self-harm, adult content, and graphic media violence.Authenticity is another key area that Elon Musk focused on after taking over Twitter. According to current Twitter rules, users may not use the platform “for the purpose of manipulating or interfering with elections or other civic processes.”
