The social network Twitter has a section for filing an appeal against the blocking of accounts. The platform company of the same name introduced an online form for users whose account has been suspended on the platform.
When Elon Musk took over Twitter, he proposed lifting restrictions on previously banned accounts. Since then, the social network has restored the accounts of former US President Donald Trump, comedian Kathy Griffin and a number of white nationalists.
The appeal option will be part of Twitter's policy to take less harsh action against users who violate the site's rules. In the future, the company will restrict access to unwanted tweets and ask users to remove such posts.
Twitter intends to suspend accounts only for serious and repeated policy violations.
Appeal applications will be evaluated against the new reinstatement criteria. A Twitter spokesperson did not specify exactly what parameters would be considered when requesting an appeal and how long it would take.
