Twitter wants to fight trolling

Twitter has founded a Trust and Safety Council, which forms part of its strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.

Over the past few years, many Twitter users have complained about abuse, harassment, and bullying on the platform.

“To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies,” the company said.

Twitter wants to combat this abuse through its new council, which will include safety advocates, academics, and researchers.

“As we develop products, policies, and programmes, our Trust and Safety Council will help us tap into the expertise and input of organisations at the intersection of these issues more efficiently and quickly.”

“We have more than 40 organisations and experts from 13 regions joining as inaugural members of the Council,” said Twitter.

“We are thrilled to work with these organisations to ensure that we are enabling everyone, everywhere to express themselves with confidence on Twitter.”
