Twitter ‘ghost’ deletes offensive tweets

New York, Feb 22: Twitter ‘ghost’ is deleting offensive tweets, most certainly in line with its campaign to weed out the offensive and harassing content and make the platform safe for its users.

According to a report in Heatstreet, when Twitter ‘ghost’ deletes tweets it deems offensive, it appears on the timeline of the person who writes it while others cannot read it. The move comes a week after Twitter started blocking accounts temporarily for using offensive language. Twitter user John Sweeney (@SuperNerdLand) was the first to notice that the micro-blogging site had ‘ghost’ deleted his offensive tweet. He was able to read that tweet but the rest of the users were redirected to an error page if they even tried to enter the URL manually. (IANS)
