Twitter to flag violators

New policy means Twitter will make it clear when someone has posted a tweet that violates its terms of service. 

Twitter has announced that it will easier to identify when it has taken enforcement action against users who have violated its rules.

Twitter already requires users to delete a tweet that it has determined violates its rules before they can tweet again.

However, it wasn’t always clear if tweets had been deleted because of an enforcement decision or if users had simply chosen to remove their own tweet(s).

The following message will appear on the user’s profile:

"This tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules."

The message will continue appear for up to 14 days after the user has deleted the original tweet.
