Twitter Bans Homophobic Attacks and Threats…


Date: January 05, 2016

These are gay news websites…Doesn’t look to be any actual porn displayed, so I’ll link them…but you’ve been warned. Some suggestive pictures are displayed.

01) Twitter clamps down on homophobia and abuse

“Twitter’s Director of Trust and Safety, Megan Cristina, outlined new guidelines for the microblogging site”

“The updated language emphasizes that Twitter will not tolerate behaviour intended to harass, intimidate, or use fear to silence another user’s voice.

[…]

…also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories”

02) Twitter will now ban accounts that tweet homophobic abuse

“You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or disease, ‘ according to the new rules.

Previous warnings banned users from promoting ‘violence against others’.”

So…as a celibate homosexual MAP, will Twitter take action when people start calling me nasty names, threaten my life and safety, try to disparage my character, or act in bad will to attempt getting me banned from the service?

I may be putting this to the test.
