Twitter on Wednesday unveiled a revamped Transparency Center, bringing the social media platform’s biannual transparency reports into a website that’s easier to read. The goal is to make the site’s transparency reporting more accessible and provide more details on how Twitter enforces its rules, according to a Wednesday blog post.
The new Transparency Center will share more granular data on those who violate Twitter rules. Twitter has seen a 47% increase in accounts locked or suspended for violating the rules, something it attributes to increased focus on proactively seeking out content that violates the rules for human review, along with more specific policies, better reporting tools and the introduction of more data.
The site also includes all of Twitter’s disclosed data in one place and data visualizations that make it easier to compare trends over time and by country.
The latest data on the site reflects the period from July through December 2019. Typically, the company tries to release this information every six months, but COVID-19 and getting the new Transparency Center up and running caused delays, the blog post said. The next update will cover January through June 2020.
The data doesn’t include any information on enforcement ofon the platform.
