Social network Twitter from December 18 began to apply new rules to combat hate speech on the Internet. About it reports The Guardian.
The rules relating to incitement to hatred on all grounds: racial, national, political.
A social network primarily fights with neo-Nazi and ultra-right content. Under the new rules, the user is forbidden to post content about the superiority of some individuals and the inferiority of others.
The new rules apply not only to the content of posts, but also the nicknames of the users. Page-violators will be blocked.
As earlier reported, Twitter has banned the advertisement of Russia Today and Sputnik on their pages.
