Twitter users will be able to appeal account suspensions and be assessed against the social media platform’s new reinstatement criteria, starting Feb. 1, the company announced Friday.


Under the new criteria, which follows billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of the company in October, Twitter accounts will only be suspended for serious or ongoing and repeated violations of the platform’s policies.

Serious policy violations include engaging in illegal content or activity, inciting or threatening violence or harm, and targeted harassment of other users, among others.

Twitter said that in the future it will take less severe measures, compared to suspending the account, such as limiting the reach of tweets that violate its policies or asking users to delete tweets before continuing to use the account. .

In December, Musk was criticized for suspending the accounts of several journalists following a controversy over the publication of public data on the billionaire’s plane. He then reinstated the accounts.

A few days ago, Twitter owner Elon Musk also tweeted about a more expensive subscription to the social media platform that will feature no ads. Calling the ads “too frequent on Twitter and too big”, the billionaire assured that steps would be taken to address these issues in the coming weeks. It is important to note here that Twitter derives almost 90% of its revenue from the sale of digital advertisements. Recently, Musk blamed advocacy organizations for the “massive drop in revenue” due to pressure on brands to suspend ads on Twitter.

In January, the microblogging site also announced the price of a Twitter Blue subscription for Android at $11 (around Rs. 900) per month, similar to the charges for iOS subscribers. However, the company offered a cheaper annual plan for internet users compared to the monthly fee. The higher prices for Android users are likely to offset the fees charged by Android’s Google Play Store, like Apple’s App Store.
