San Francisco: Twitter will now highlight when it takes an action on a bad tweet - making its over 330 million users understand that the tweet was forcibly taken down and not deleted by its user owing to public outrage.
According to the micro-blogging platform, once it requires a tweet to be deleted, it will display a notice stating that the tweet is unavailable because it violated the Twitter rules. It will also show a link to the rules and an article that provides more detail on how it enforces them, the company said in a blog post on Wednesday.
"This notice will be displayed on both the account`s profile and the specific Tweet for 14 days after the Tweet is deleted. You`ll see this change rolling out to both the app and on Twitter.com in the coming weeks," said Twitter product manager Sam Toizer.
Twitter has also got feedback that users don`t want to continue seeing tweets they have reported. "Starting today (Wednesday), once you`ve reported a tweet, it will be hidden behind a notice like the one below. If there`s a need to see the Tweet you reported, you can tap the notice to view it," Toizer informed.
