Twitter reveals changes to its reporting process

Twitter is making changes to make its reporting process more transparent.

The micro-blogging platform has come under fire in recent years, but has now pledged to clearly highlight when a tweet has had some kind of action taken against it.

Twitter product manager Sam Toizer explained in a blog post: "Now, once we've required a Tweet to be deleted, we will display a notice stating that the Tweet is unavailable because it violated the Twitter Rules along with a link to the Rules and an article that provides more detail on how we enforce our rules.

"This notice will be displayed on both the account's profile and the specific Tweet for 14 days after the Tweet is deleted. (sic)"

The new changes will be introduced in the next few weeks, according to Twitter.

The announcement comes shortly after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey revealed the company feels a responsibility to the public.

He explained: "We can only stand for freedom of expression if people feel safe to express themselves in the first place.

"A lot of people come to Twitter and they don't see a service. They see what looks like a public square and they have the same expectation as they have of a public square, and that is what we have to get right."
