Twitter announced labels for tweets that potentially violate the company’s hateful conduct policy. The microblogging platform will make such tweets less discoverable.
Additionally, Twitter will not place ads adjacent to the labelled content. “Restricting the reach of Tweets, also known as visibility filtering, is one of our existing enforcement actions that allow us to move beyond the binary “leave up versus take down” approach to content moderation,” Twitter said in a blog post.

Musk recently expanded the tweet character limit to 10,000, with bold and italic text formatting, exclusively for Twitter Blue subscribers. This came after Musk confirmed that legacy checkmarks will be removed on April 20, 2023.
