Today we're sharing information about attempts to manipulate Twitter – carried out by state-linked actors in six countries – and adding these datasets to our public archive. All associated accounts & content have been removed.

The goal is to serve the public conversation & advance shared understanding of these critical issues. We’ve partnered with @ASPI_ICPC  , @cazamosfakenews  , and @stanfordio  – leaders in this area that are providing independent analysis today.

And, in time, we hope to expand beyond info ops, sharing data insights about other areas, such as misinformation, coordinated harmful activity, and safety.

Twitter receives millions of reports and we know there’s more work to do to ensure people feel safe & heard. That’s why we’re testing a new reporting process to make it easier to report unhealthy and unwanted content. Here’s how we’re approaching it:

People use Twitter to discuss what’s happening in the world, which sometimes means sharing unsettling or sensitive content. We’re testing an option for some of you to add one-time warnings to photos and videos you Tweet out, to help those who might want the warning.

When you report a Tweet, we want to know exactly what happened so we can learn how to keep you safer on Twitter, not only now, but also in the future. This required us to overhaul our reporting system which we are testing now. Learn more:

When you see something that’s not right or don’t feel safe on Twitter, reporting a Tweet should be easy and straightforward. That’s why we’re testing an overhauled reporting system to make it easier to report unhealthy and unwanted content. Check it out:

We’ve been all over the TL making sure you know about safety tools lately and here’s a roundup of a few of our newer ones. 🧵

Today we're expanding this test feature to folks tweeting from Brazil, Spain, or the Philippines. Till now we've received around 3M reports from you all, calling out Tweets that violate our policies & helping us understand new misinformation trends. Stay tuned for more to come.


After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump  account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump  account.

We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm. In line with this approach, this week we are taking further action on so-called ‘QAnon’ activity across the service.

Today we’re adding new data to our archive of information operations, the only one of its kind in the industry. Networks affiliated with Iran, Thailand, Cuba, Saudi Arabia & a previously disclosed network from Russia, have all been removed from the service.

Someone has to sort out the bots from the humans on Twitter and we’ve got a team on it. We launched a label for the good ones, and while the label isn't an endorsement, we want you to know which bots are made by developers to help, entertain, or just harmlessly share info. 🧵

Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so.

Privacy is about way more than protecting data. It’s also about giving you tools to help you create your own Twitter experience & feel safe. Check out the differences between Public and Protected accounts on Twitter so you can choose what feels right for you.
