The regulations add to existing regulations regarding safety, privacy, and credibility and prevent users from “posting or sharing content that may discourage voter participation or mislead people about when, where, and how to vote.” This means that users will not be able to say on the social network that voters will not vote for a false truth, and in the face of this type of call, the company will be tougher in punishment.
In addition to this tool, the app has included 10 myths that it seeks to abolish that can be used to justify account closure for electoral reasons.
Twitter suspended my account without justification
The company specifies that suspended accounts are those that violate community rules, and these rules, according to Centeno, have nothing to do with the political position of the user whose account has been suspended.

Centeno noted that “he is always notified when an account is pending review or has been suspended and users can take advantage of their right to respond so that the account can be reactivated again.”
Organized account group to withdraw my Twitter account
