Twitter will now allow users, suspended for violating its guidelines, appeal the decision directly within its platform.

Earlier, users whose accounts were frozen needed to fill an online form to appeal Twitter’s decision and the response time varied from a few hours to over a week.

“We move quickly to enforce our rules but sometimes we don’t have the full context and can make mistakes,” the company tweeted late on Tuesday.

Twitter claimed the new in-app feature will cut down response time by 60 per cent.

“We added a way for people to appeal our decision in the app and have been able to get back to people 60 per cent faster than before,” it said.

Twitter can suspend accounts for being fake, abusive, threatening or for spamming or impersonating someone.

Micro blogging site Twitter on Thursday rolled out new emoji reactions for Direct Messages to all users on the web, iOS and Android.

It is similar to the functionality that Facebook added to Messenger back in 2017, which enables users to allocate an emoji response to each specific message.

The official @Twitter account teased the feature sharing the string of emoji that will be available once the feature is live.

To add an emoji reaction, hover over the message and click/tap on the heart button called a ‘reaction button’.

A user can also double-tap on the message and select an emoji reaction after the pop-up.
