With the passage of time, Twitter has taken several initiatives to help users in avoiding spam, abuse and related issues. Twitter has actively been making changes to safeguard users from harassment. Twitter unveiled a new online Safety Center to guide users with handling of unwanted contact. The new Safety Center includes several tools, policies and other information that users need if they are harassed on Twitter.
It offers you advice about staying safe on Twitter and several links to various tools that Twitter has to offer. The Safety Center has three sections – Tools, Policies and Enforcement. The aim is to help users give all the information at one place that they need to stay safe. Each section includes advice and guides about improving security and avoiding unwanted content.
Further, Safety Center has separate sections for Teens, Parents and Educators and gives them relevant information on the policies. Twitter also addresses different user policies so that people know whether parody accounts are allowed or not and if allowed, then in what contexts. Safety Center is more than being a place for accessing resources when being harassed by someone. It is a useful tool where all can learn about online safety.
This is what Twitter says:
The Safety Center is a resource for anyone to learn about online safety, on Twitter and beyond. This resource is a result of our work with online safety experts who continuously help us to promote good digital citizenship. We’re excited to make this knowledge easily accessible to you via this new site. The Safety Center is organized around Twitter’s tools and policies to address your safety, with sections created especially for teens, parents and educators.
These resources should help you quickly understand how to manage your experience on Twitter and also understand how the community and Twitter take action together when our policies are violated.
Check out the new Safety Center today.
