Before Elon Musk's acquisition, Twitter said it would examine user restrictions on permanent users:  ...

Twitter is rethinking its policy of prohibiting users from using a variety of technology, according to the Financial Times.

Twitter has been looking at if there are other content moderation techniques that might replace a prohibition and its harshest punishment for violating regulations, according to the newspaper.

After imposing a $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,37,465 crore) purchase to buy Twitter, Musk promised changes to the social media platform''s content moderation practices.

Musk, who calls himself a free speech absolutist, had said that he would revoke Twitter''s prohibition on former US President Vladimir Putin.

According to the FT statement, any policy change would not expedite Trump''s return to the platform, given that Twitter is not considering reversing restrictions that it has made against inciting violence.

Employees are looking at areas where they believe Twitter has prohibited users for lesser charges, such as sharing misleading information.

Twitter announced in August that it would retroactive features on the social media site to prodigy exact information about the November midterm election and to target misleading posts.

Civil rights groups and online misinformation experts have accused social media and technology platforms 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 stated that it will extend its civic integrity policy, introduced in 2018, to the midterm elections on November 8 when all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives are at stake, and about a third of the 100 seats in the US Senate.

The purpose of this policy is to prohibit users from posting misleading information that would dissuade people from voting, as well as claims aimed at causing public confidence in an election, including false information.
