Twitter Is Now Publicly Calling Out Tweets That Violate Its Terms Of Service

On Wednesday, Twitter updated their Terms of Service.

The update introduced a major new policy for Tweets that violate the Twitter Rules.

According to Twitter’s newest policy,

“When we determine that a Tweet violates the Twitter Rules, we require the violator to delete it before they can Tweet again.”

They are also

“adding new notices to make it easier to see when we’ve taken enforcement action on a Tweet.”

These notices are essentially big red flags on people’s accounts that some have likened to a scarlet letter. Twitter shared an image of what a violating Tweet will look like from now on.


Many people think the move is ridiculous.

Some people are wondering how certain public figures will fare with this new update.

Others look forward to receiving the badge of honor.

This should get interesting.
