Recently, Twitter plans to launch more aggressive enforcement of their strategies that directly related to the chats sent during the live broadcasts, for the Periscope which is beginning on 10th August 2018. It will only begin to review and suspend accounts, which frequently send offensive comments in the chats during live broadcasts in an attempt to break down on violent users.
As with many other social media platforms, Periscope and Twitter now have been strengthening to consider with the abusive behavior. In current months, Twitter has revealed some new steps merely to cut down on the bad behavior, banning bots and also accounts, and making its rules and expectations which are clearer to the users. However, the Periscope has been taken a few steps on its own, and it will also issue updates which easily pull together to the “flash juries” only to appraise comments. But still these issues have continued on the service, so here the company seems to be ready only to make further concerted attempts by helping to cut down on cruelty.
Periscope also stated that the users could already report and block chats only to make the design better. While the existing “flash juries” method might be a very useful way to restrain harmful behavior, sometimes it only boots someone from a very specific chat. But when a user is blocked and reported from a video which widens to one stream, simply means that the user can move on to some other videos and will also persist in their behavior. Here the Twitter’s new attempts will also prompt the reviewers to take a very close look to those users: people who are constantly reported for being offensive.
Apart from this, the Periscope’s Trust & Safety team has also noted that its viewers and broadcasters have always felt safe, and said that more policies had been changes on their way. Breaking down on abuse and its platform is one of the needed things for the site, it is also reported that the monthly user count was dropped by a million of users over the last months, and might drop lower as it only works to get troubleshoot of bots and also with the abusive users.
