Finally there is an official message from Twitter Inc. about the much-discussed Twitter 2.0. Since Elon Musk took over, the people at the company have been listening and talking about Twitter 2.0, but no one has a good idea what Twitter 2.0 is all about. And with this official communication from Twitter now, you will all learn what Twitter 2.0 actually is.
And in today’s article, I will tell you everything that is in the official blog of Twitter Inc. state about Twitter 2.0. So without further ado, let’s see what Twitter 2.0 is and what Twitter has to say about it without firing a shot in the dark.
What is Twitter 2.0?
This is what Twitter Inc. said about Twitter 2.0 in their official blog on November 30, 2022
The official blog of Twitter Inc. started by remembering the actual mission behind the creation of the platform called Twitter, that is “being the town square of the internet.” And this is only possible when people can converse in public and the power to create and share ideas lies with people without any barriers.
After this, they mentioned that Twitter is now a new company, renamed Twitter 2.0. But this new chapter does mean that something changes in the mission and vision of the company. It still has to make it the Internet’s town square by promoting and protecting public conversation. And to emphasize this they added: “In fact, we are better positioned to realize our ambitions than ever before.” But how accurate their words are, time will tell.
Then they got to the main point and added: “We’ve always understood that our business and revenues are connected to our mission…” showing that they have now realized that if humans have the power to create something, those humans can also destroy it. As they continued to do so, they added: “Brand safety is only possible when human safety is the highest priority.” And this can be interpreted as brand safety only possible when human consensus is taken into account; otherwise people are already looking for alternatives. Who cares these days? And no matter how cool you play or pretend, in the end the loss is yours. And you know it very well.
Speaking of their changed approach, they said what has changed “is our approach to experimentation.” And referred it to what you’ve seen over the past few weeks and named it “public testing.” They also added, “we believe this open and transparent approach to innovation is healthy.” Haha!
This obviously helped them collect the feedback of years within weeks, which they might never have been able to do had they chosen to ask the user in a prescribed way. Because, you know, everyone is too busy filling out the feedback forms and stuff. Going on to this, they added that all this drama (experimentation for them) that is going on was done by keeping “One goal in mind: to improve Twitter for our customers, partners, and the people who use it around the world.” I seriously can’t believe this!
And finally, they come up with a few commitments related to Twitter 2.0, take a deep breath and look at what they assure you.
- No policy changes. Hurry! But they will work on policy enforcement that will be more focused on “de-amplification of infringing content.” By de-amplification they mean “freedom of speech, but not freedom of speech.”
- The Trust & Safety team will continue to work effectively “to protect the platform against hateful behavior, abusive behavior and any violation of Twitter’s rules.”
- For some urgent events that arise, content moderators are provided with necessary guidance “Find and deal with infringing content.”
- A team of experts will constantly work on it “Identifying and Defusing Threats” of bad actors.
- They learn from their mistakes and also get things right by communicating openly with their users and customers. A big applause for them.
And in the final statement they promised that too “remain committed to providing a safe, inclusive, entertaining and informative experience for everyone.” And also to listen to the users who made Twitter what it is today. What a speech, Bravo!
This brings me to the end of this blog, and I hope you enjoyed reading it. Also, now you know what is Twitter 2.0. which is nothing but the same company, renamed and owned by Elon Musk with few changes in work culture and all. For users, it’s almost the same. And what you can expect is given in the guarantees above.
