There are more than 40 organizations involved with the council. including NetSafe, GLAAD, the Internet Watch Foundation, the Wahid Institute, the U.K. Safer Internet Centre and Childnet International.They  will provide “input on our safety products, policies, and programs”. What they want was clearly declared:  “we don’t tolerate violent threats or Tweets that promote violence. We also prohibit content that threatens or promotes violence or terrorism against a person or group on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age or disability.” A new anti-harassment feature will roll out through 2016 on the network, intended to provide “regular and consistent action” to offer protections for users who have been the subject of extreme abuse or threats. Abusive comments are targeted. The company is also facing its own torrent of abusive messages from users angry at proposed changes to the service, including allowing tweets of up to 10,000 characters from the current limit of 140, and changing the order of messages in the timeline.
