Twitter Revises Woke Policies Including Punishment for Trans ‘Deadnaming’

'We’re adding more transparency to the enforcement actions we take on Tweets. .. '

(Headline USA) Twitter has removed a policy against the “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals,” raising concerns among radical activists pushing their own agendas that the Elon Musk-owned platform is becoming what they claim is less safe for marginalized groups.

Twitter enacted the policy against deadnaming, or using a transgender person’s name before they transitioned, as well as purposefully using the wrong gender for someone as a form of harassment, in 2018.

On Monday, Twitter also said it will only put warning labels on some tweets that are “potentially” in violation of its rules against hateful conduct. Previously, the tweets were removed.

It was in this policy update that Twitter appears to have deleted the line against deadnaming from its rules.

“Twitter’s decision to covertly roll back its longtime policy is the latest example of just how unsafe the company is for users and advertisers alike,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, the president and CEO of the activist advocacy group GLAAD.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a message for comment Tuesday.
