Before Elon Musk's departure, Twitter warned to review policies concerning permanent user restrictio ...

Twitter is reviewing its policy about limiting users indefinitely, according to the Financial Times.

Twitter is looking at if there are other content moderation tools that might replace a prohibition, and its harshest penalty for violating regulations, according to the newspaper, citing several individuals familiar with the situation.

In May, Musk announced changes to the content moderation policies of the social media platform shortly after agreeing to a $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,37,465 crore) deal to buy Twitter.

Musk, who describes himself as a free speech extreme, had also stated that he would reverse Twitter''s prohibition on former US President Donald Trump.

According to the FT reports, any policy change would be unlikely to pave the way for Trump''s return to the platform, since Twitter isn''t considering reversing restrictions for enacting its prohibition against inciting violence.

Employees are looking into areas where they believe Twitter has banned users for minor actions, such as sharing misleading information, according to reports.

Kanye West''s account was restricted over the weekend, claiming that she removed photographs by the rapper that internet users considered as anti-Semitic.

Twitter and Trump''s representatives did not respond to Reuters'' requests for comments immediately.

In August, Twitter claimed that it would revitalize social media sites in order to re-enable accurate information about the US midterm election in November and to limit misleading posts.

Experts in civil rights and online misinformation have accused social media and technology of failing to do enough to prevent the spread of misinformation, including the notion that US President Joe Biden did not win the 2020 election.

Twitter has announced that it will extend its civic integrity policy, introduced in 2018, to the midterm elections on November 8th, when all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives are in place, and about a third of the 100 seats in the US Senate.

The policy prohibits users from posting misleading content that would dissuade people from voting and claims that it was to undermine public trust in an election, implying that false information is provided about an election outcome.
