Twitter users are going on time-out

Twitter users are going on time-out

February 16, 2017

 

If you act out, Twitter's going to put you in the naughty corner.

 

 

For at least one week, the platform has been temporarily limiting some users' accounts for "potentially abusive behavior." As spotted by Heat Street, the timeout lasts 12 hours, and for its duration, only followers can see the user's Twitter activity. After time's up, the account is restored.

In the notification informing users of their half day quasi-suspension, Twitter writes: "Creating a safer environment for people to freely express themselves is critical to the Twitter community, so if behavior that may violate the Twitter rules is detected, certain account features become limited."

In some cases, it appears users may be prompted to delete the problematic tweets. Twitter has been contacted for further details.
