Introducing the new Twitter Safety Centre

Monday, 20 July 2015

In the last few months, you may have noticed some changes on Twitter designed to make your experience safer. For example, we introduced changes to our reporting mechanisms, overhauled how we review user reports and improved our block feature. In our ongoing commitment to your safety, today we’re unveiling a new Safety Centre.

The Safety Centre is a resource for anyone to learn about online safety, on Twitter and beyond. This resource is a result of our work with online safety experts who continuously help us to promote good digital citizenship. We’re excited to make this knowledge easily accessible to you via this new site. The Safety Centre is organised around Twitter’s tools and policies to address your safety, with sections created especially for teens, parents and educators.

These resources should help you quickly understand how to manage your experience on Twitter and also understand how the community and Twitter take action together when our policies are violated.

Introducing the new Twitter Safety Centre

Your online safety is a shared responsibility, and digital citizenship is essential to fostering a safe environment for all. As Twitter evolves along with the world of online safety, we will continue to create new materials for the Safety Centre. And since we are a global community, in the coming weeks the Safety Centre will be translated into some of the most-used languages on Twitter and even more languages over time. We will continue to work with our partners around the world to bring the most useful information to the Twitter community.
