Platform Policies and Community Guidelines


Brand Safety @Twitter
Improving the health of the public conversation is a top priority for Twitter. Violence, harassment and other similar types of behavior discourage people from expressing themselves and create an unsafe environment, and this behavior has no place on Twitter. In addition to our work to combat this negative activity platform-wide, Twitter has invested in a suite of solutions aimed at ensuring a safe advertising experience for everyone who uses Twitter.
Amplify Publisher Program
The Amplify Publisher Program was created to make it easy for publishers to monetize video content on Twitter, and also turn-key for advertisers to align with brand-safe content.
The Twitter Transparency Center
While Twitter has been publishing biannual transparency reports since 2012, in 2020 these reports evolved into a more comprehensive Transparency Center covering a broader array of Twitter's transparency efforts. Twitter now includes sections covering information requests, removal requests, copyright notices, trademark notices, email security, Twitter Rules enforcement, platform manipulation, and state-backed information operations.
The Twitter Rules
Twitter's purpose is to serve the public conversation. Violence, harassment and other similar types of behavior discourage people from expressing themselves, and ultimately diminish the value of global public conversation. The Twitter Rules ensure all people can participate in the public conversation freely and safely.


Safety Center
As a global community that thrives on creativity and expression, it's important that users feel safe and comfortable in this community. Our policies and tools are developed to promote a positive and safe environment for our community, and we trust that users will respect and utilize these measures to keep TikTok fun and welcoming for everyone.
TikTok Transparency Reports
"We publish Transparency Reports to provide visibility into the volume and nature of content removed for violating our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. We also report how we respond to law enforcement requests for information, government requests for content removals, and intellectual property removal requests. This report covers the second half of 2020 (July 1 - December 31)..."
TikTok Inventory Filter
"TikTok Inventory Filter is a proprietary solution which gives advertisers control over the type of content which runs next to their ads. While all content on our platform goes through careful moderation against our Community Guidelines... TikTok Inventory Filter is an additional layer of control, specifically for advertisers, to help you ensure that your advertising appears adjacent to content that aligns with your advertising goals and brand identity, as your brand guidelines may not necessarily align with TikTok’s guidelines."
