There are times when you come across a tweet but only to discover that maybe an hour later it has disappeared. There could be many reasons for this, such as the user themselves deleting it, or it could be possible that the tweet might have been deleted for violating Twitter’s guidelines.

However Twitter will soon let users know when a tweet has been removed for guideline violations in a bid to be more transparent about their operations. “One piece of feedback we’ve heard regularly is that it’s not always clear to people when we took enforcement action or if someone deleted a Tweet on their own. Starting today, we’re adding new notices to make it easier to see when we’ve taken enforcement action on a Tweet.”

Twitter adds, “Now, once we’ve required a Tweet to be deleted, we will display a notice stating that the Tweet is unavailable because it violated the Twitter Rules along with a link to the Rules and an article that provides more detail on how we enforce our rules. This notice will be displayed on both the account’s profile and the specific Tweet for 14 days after the Tweet is deleted.”

Twitter has also announced that when users report tweets, that tweet will be hidden so that users won’t need to keep viewing it until it has been addressed. The company claims that these changes are expected to begin rolling out in the next few weeks.
