NOW TWITTER TO SUSPEND ACCOUNTS FOR POSTING ABUSIVE CONTENT

It's not too long since Twitter came out with a spree to clean out the fake Twitter profiles. After this move, many of the celebrities saw a massive dip in their followers count. Now, in a new move taken by Twitter if a person is posting an abusive comment on its live streaming platform 'Periscope' then with immediate action his account will be suspended. As per Periscope's blog post, to make live videos a safe experience online, Twitter will work with Periscope to remove suspicious accounts which are repeatedly posting abusive comments during live streams. Until now, as per Periscope’s moderation policy when a comment was marked as spam, abusive, or offending, it would send these comments for group voting. where random users would be sent those comments to check. If the majority had decided that the comment was indeed abusive, the commentator would be suspended from the conversation. But this does not mean that it would suspend the user from commenting on other live videos. Therefore, making the online experience unsafe. However, from 10 August onwards, Periscope and Twitter will not only suspend the commentator, if it finds that the person is a repeat offender, their accounts will also be suspended. This looks like a cleanliness drive for Twitter, as it has selected two academic projects whose purpose is to measure the 'health' of conversations on Twitter. It could be one of its ways to curb online extremism, abuse and harassment. Twitter is continuously trying to make our social media experience better and we are just loving it, what do you have to say about it do let us know in the comments section below and for more updates keep visiting gabruu.com
