Twitter claims progress in fighting abusive content

American social media platform Twitter claimed on Tuesday it made "strides in creating a healthier service" after the company came under attack over its mishandling of abusive content, especially in the case of death threats received by US Representative Ilhan Omar.

In a post titled "A healthier Twitter: progress and more to do," the company claimed it suspended three times more abusive accounts within 24 hours after a report compared to the same period a year ago. It also noted a 60% faster response to appeal requests through its new in-app appeal process, while managing to remove 2.5 times more private information through a new, simplified reporting process.

Additionally, the company led by Jack Dorsey (pictured) pointed out the need to remove abusive content proactively, even if it's not immediately reported by users. "This time last year, 0% of potentially abusive content was flagged to our teams for review proactively. Today, by using technology, 38% of abusive content that’s enforced is surfaced proactively for human review instead of relying on reports from people using Twitter," the company stated.
