Two years ago, Twitter clarified its principles and approaches in dealing with world leaders on the platform, and today, Twitter invites the public to contribute to how to organize dealing with world leaders on the platform in an effort to ensure that the company’s policies keep pace with the rapid changes that affect political conversations on the platform while continuing to protect the health of Public conversations.
The platform had recently launched a public poll that would help develop a general framework for its policy, and the poll aims to know the opinion of the public and whether they believe that world leaders should be subject to the same laws that others are subject to on Twitter, and if one of the laws is violated, what is the procedure the appropriate.
The survey is available in 14 languages: Arabic, English, Chinese, Farsi, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu, and the aim is to obtain a comprehensive view that reflects a global viewpoint in line with the approach taken by the company in previous public surveys.
In addition to the poll, Twitter is consulting with a wide range of human rights experts, civil society organizations, and academics around the world, whose comments will be reflected in future reviews of the policy framework.
The platform seeks to serve public conversation to allow the public to listen to and interact with leaders around the world, as it ultimately aims to ensure that there is a policy that properly balances basic human rights while taking into account the global context in which it operates.
It is worth noting that the last date for participating in the poll will be on Tuesday, April 13th, at four oclock in the morning UAE local time, three oclock in the morning KSA time, and two oclock in the morning Egypt time.
