Twitter's Safety Center Is Commited To Building A Safer User Experience


For Twitter, building a better social network means building a safer one. In an ongoing effort to improve browsing experience, the company has rolled out multiple additions and alterations to its safety features.

These include steps that make reporting and blocking abusive or harmful content easier and more efficient, as well as changes to how the company reviews user reports concerning abuse.

The latest of these changes comes in the form of a consolidated "Safety Center," aimed at building a safer platform for teens, families and educators alike. The primary goal here is to provide information and make it easily accessible and dissectible.

"This resource is a result of our work with online safety experts who continuously help us to promote good digital citizenship," said Patricia Cartes, Twitter's head of Global Trust & Safety Outreach, Public Policy, in a blog post on behalf of the company.

The site streamlines its information into three main sections: tools, policies and enforcement. Each one is set up like an FAQ page minus the questions. Based on user experience, the website anticipates a series of privacy, abuse and harassment problems and offers solutions through new and old features linked to the network.

The company is cognizant of its global stake, and, in the coming months, will be working toward providing this information in languages other than just English.
