Jack Dorsey, co-founder and chief executive officer of Twitter, has struggled to deal with rampant abuse on the service. Twitter, facing pressure and an online boycott over its permissive attitude toward abusive and harassing speech, has decided to take a tougher stance, CEO Jack Dorsey said late Friday.
In a series of tweets, Dorsey said the social media giant would announce new rules in the next few weeks restricting “unwanted sexual advances, nonconsensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups” and any post that “glorifies violence.”
He gave no details, saying only that Twitter executives “decided to take a more aggressive stance in our rules and how we enforce them.”
Twitter will now be censoring your tweets.
