In a recent blog post, Twitter announced it is stepping up its policy against dehumanizing content on the popular social media platform. Specifically, the blog post underlines that the website will be taking in more user responses and suggestions to stop the use of "language that makes someone less than human." This change was prompted after a majority of content did not fall under the existing "hateful conduct policy" but were still considered abusive.
To garner information on what may be considered dehumanizing content Twitter is opening up a survey until October 9, 2018. The information garnered from this survey will then be reviewed by Twitter employees in the policy development department, user research, engineering and enforcement teams.
