Twitter users will be able to appeal account suspensions and be assessed under the social media platform’s new criteria for reinstatement from 1 February, the company announced on Friday.

Starting Feb. 1, Twitter users can appeal their account suspensions and be evaluated based on the social media platform’s updated reinstatement criteria, the company announced on Friday.

Under the new rules, Twitter accounts will only be suspended for serious or repeated violations of the platform’s policies, such as engaging in illegal content or behavior, promoting violence or harm, and harassing other users.

Twitter stated that in the future, it will take less severe actions, such as limiting the visibility of tweets that violate its policies or asking users to delete tweets, instead of suspending accounts.

This change in policy follows billionaire Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter in October. In December, Musk faced criticism for temporarily suspending the accounts of several journalists involved in a dispute over the publication of personal data about his plane. He later restored the accounts.



The ancient idea tries to provide the most accurate information to its readers in all the content it publishes.
