Twitter unveiled new speech restrictions on Tuesday banning "language that dehumanizes others on the basis of religion" and swiftly locked Louis Farrakhan account over his 2018 tweet where he said, "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite."
From Twitter, "Updating our rules against hateful conduct":
We create our rules to keep people safe on Twitter, and they continuously evolve to reflect the realities of the world we operate within. Our primary focus is on addressing the risks of offline harm, and research* shows that dehumanizing language increases that risk. As a result, after months of conversations and feedback from the public, external experts and our own teams, we’re expanding our rules against hateful conduct to include language that dehumanizes others on the basis of religion.Louis Farrakhan's account was swiftly locked.
