Just like Twitter, Spaces are real-time and unfiltered. And while that open, honest connection makes it so valuable to brands, we also want to make sure it’s a welcoming, safe experience.
Since Twitter’s purpose is to serve the public conversation – in all forms – we’re committed to making it a safer place for everyone, including brands, by always working to improve our policies, products, and partnerships.
The Twitter Rules that prohibit behavior, such as harassment and hateful conduct, also apply to Spaces. If you can’t Tweet something under the Twitter Rules, you can’t say it in a Space. We aim to make it easy to report violations and take enforcement action where needed.
Spaces is designed to give Hosts full control. You choose who can speak; can take away/mute the mic; and remove, report, or block people from your Space. And anyone you’ve previously blocked can’t join your Space. Moving forward, we’re working on even better blocking capabilities, reporting flows, and creating NSFW warnings as needed.
Twitter is a founding member of the Digital Trust & Safety Partnership (DTSP), an industry coalition committed to keeping digital services safe. DTSP’s best practices include identifying, evaluating, and adjusting for content and conduct-related risks in product development. So following this guidance, we created Spaces with safety, accessibility, and healthy public conversation at its core.
