Twitter announced that, starting from the first of February, users of the social networking platform will be able to appeal against the suspension of their account on the site and their assessment under the new criteria, in order to reactivate the account.
Under the new standards, which followed billionaire Elon Musk's purchase of the company in October, Twitter accounts will only be suspended in the case of serious or persistent and repeated violations of the platform's policies.
Serious violations include engaging in illegal content or activity, inciting or threatening violence or harm, engaging in harassment targeting other users, and more.
From now on, Twitter said it would take less drastic action compared to account suspension, such as limiting the reach of tweets that violate its policies, or requiring users to remove tweets before continuing to use the account.
And last December, Musk was criticized for suspending the accounts of several journalists, due to the controversy over the publication of public statements about the billionaire's plane, but he reactivated the accounts at a later time.
