Twitter launches new Safety Center to educate and protect users


Over the years Twitter has taken various steps to help users avoid spam, trolls, abuse, and other online problems. Today the social site takes the wraps off the Twitter Safety Center. This is home to advice about staying safe on Twitter and online in general, as well as including links to the various tools that Twitter has to offer.

The Safety Center is divided into three sections -- Tools, Policies, and Enforcement -- and the idea is that users are given the information they need to keep themselves safe. Each of the sections includes advice and guides about improving security, maintaining privacy, and avoiding unwanted content.

As well as help and support for people wanting to protect themselves on Twitter, there are also sections for parents and teachers who will be able to help keep younger users safe. But the Safety Center is not just about staying safe, it's also about making sure you stick to Twitter's rules. To this end, the center includes guides to key policies so you know what you can and can't do -- and what to do if you spot any violations.

Twitter says:

The Safety Center is a resource for anyone to learn about online safety, on Twitter and beyond. This resource is a result of our work with online safety experts who continuously help us to promote good digital citizenship. We’re excited to make this knowledge easily accessible to you via this new site. The Safety Center is organized around Twitter’s tools and policies to address your safety, with sections created especially for teens, parents and educators.

These resources should help you quickly understand how to manage your experience on Twitter and also understand how the community and Twitter take action together when our policies are violated.

Check out the Safety Center and see what it has to offer you.
