Twitter has announced a new measure which is designed to stop bullying and harassment on its website, called the Twitter Trust & Safety Council.
The company has said that it has teamed up with more than 40 organizations in 13 regions around the world to stop bullying and harassment on Twitter.
To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies. With hundreds of millions of Tweets sent per day, the volume of content on Twitter is massive, which makes it extraordinarily complex to strike the right balance between fighting abuse and speaking truth to power. It requires a multi-layered approach where each of our 320 million users has a part to play, as do the community of experts working for safety and free expression.
That’s why we are announcing the formation of the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a new and foundational part of our strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.
