    Twitter Crackdown on Abusive Tweets

    Twitter did confirm that they will be cracking down on abusive tweets. They have attempted to do this in the past, with some limited success, but it seems that it is an ongoing effort and that they will be stepping up their game.

    According to Ed Ho, VP of engineering at Twitter, "We're taking steps to identify people who have been permanently suspended and stop them from creating new accounts."

    He later went on and said, "This focuses more effectively on some of the most prevalent and damaging forms of behavior, particularly accounts that are created only to abuse and harass others."

    They are also releasing a new 'safe search' initiative, which is set up to get rid of any Tweets that have content that could be sensitive. This feature will also filter out any comments or Tweets from users that have muted accounts.

    I'd love to see a few people screwed over by twitter such as Milo create an alternative to twitter. Twitter is starting to cater to college snowflakes too much.

    How the hell do they plan to do this?
    What stops me from changing proxies, user agents and emails?

    Well as of now if you are suspended you an just make a new account right away same credentials.

    So they will be doing what basically every other website does, keeping banned people banned.
