Some of twitter's other moves to ban people selectively? Often suspect. They'll ban one user for "offensive behavior" while they let others slide. Complete lack of transparency and consistency, different metrics for different users. Justice is not blind, by any stretch. They're a private firm so they can do what they want. Even so, I can't help but think the Internet is gradually getting replaced by the Coddlenet. A lot of people seem to want a safe space and a binky. Whoops, was that offensive?This update is part of a broader attempt by Twitter to grapple with some of its most toxic users. The company also said that it has made it easier for users to report abusive tweets, retrained its support staff to help them recognize harassment, and improved the internal tools used to respond to these complaints. All together, these changes represent Twitter's continued efforts to make its platform seem more welcoming to users who fear harassment.
