Two important developments released today surrounding Twitter (TWTR), which is part of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, have provided investors with a deeper look into the new management’s longer-term vision for the platform.
The 2016 presidential candidates and those involved in the race — including Donald Trump, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, the Republican and Democratic national committees, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz, among others — are welcoming the New Year on Friday with a flurry of tweets, videos, and messages.
Twitter has issued new guidelines to combat abuse and harassment after it was criticised for failing to stop the Islamic State (ISIS) from using the platform to advance its propaganda and recruit people to its fold.
Twitter said Thursday it was restoring access to deleted tweets from politicians, saying it would help “bring more transparency to public dialogue.”
Earlier this year, the US messaging platform had blocked access to the deleted items by a website called Politwoops, which collected deleted tweets from politicians in 30 countries.
