Beginning on February 1, Twitter users will have the ability to contest account bans and will be subject to the new reinstatement standards set forth by the social media site.
Twitter accounts will only be terminated under the new guidelines, which came after billionaire Elon Musk bought the firm in October, for serious or persistent infractions of the platform's rules.
Inciting or threatening violence or other harm, engaging in illegal content or activity, and harassing other users specifically are all considered severe policy violations.
Twitter announced that moving ahead, it will take less drastic action compared to account suspension, such as limiting the audience of messages that break its rules or requesting users to delete tweets before using the account again.
