Twitter is stepping up surveillance to remove abusive content. The company attributed its actions to the policy changes it made during 2020.
Twitter has increased its platform monitoring. This is one of its key elements most recent company transparency report, which he announced on Wednesday. Between July 1 and December 31, 2020, Twitter reported taking action against 964.459 accounts for misconduct. Compared to the first six months of 2020, this is an increase of 142%.

Twitter is also discussing extending its hate policy to ban racist messages that discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity or ethnicity.
Elsewhere in the report, Twitter also attributes its recent success to better technology. Since the second half of last year, the company claims that its automated surveillance tools have helped to crack down on 65 percent of abusive tweets and other behaviors before anyone needs to flag them as infringers.
