17 October 2017, 12:58 | Ruben Stone
After boycott, Twitter pledges to introduce new anti-abuse rules
We asked Twitter for more details on what this all means.
In the backdrop of protest, #WomenBoycottTwitter, sparked by actor Rose McGowan, Twitter has made a decision to roll out new safety rules in the "next few weeks". In order to curb the unwanted behaviour, Dorsey has promised to develop a more "transparent" platform to "build trust" among the users. "We've been working to counteract this for the past 2 years", he wrote in the first tweet of his series. "New Rules: unwanted social advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbol, violent groups and tweets that glorify violence".
Twitter had earlier suspended actress Rose McGowan's account prompting some users to boycott the social media giant.

McGowab's account was shut down following her comments about the Harvey Weinstein controversy. In a scathing thread, she alleged that he raped her in 1997 and accused a number of media bosses of being complicit.
Dorsey said that Twitter will get to changing its verification process "as soon as we can" but are bound by "limited resources" that requires them to "strictly prioritize".
The Twitter statement on the ban: "We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team". However, he also said that it's not as high a priority as enforcing rules on trolls and people putting out abusive tweets. Bloomberg LP is developing a global breaking news network for the Twitter service.
