Twitter reports 85% decrease in monthly complaints in India

Between August 26 and September 25, Twitter in India received 157 complaints regarding harassment and hateful conduct, an 85% decrease over the prior month. This is also the year’s lowest monthly grievance total in India.

Between August 26 and September 25, the microblogging site suspended nearly 54,000 accounts in India because they had broken the platform’s policies.

For reasons involving non-consensual nudity, child sexual exploitation, and other content, Twitter suspended 52,141 accounts. In addition, Twitter’s India Transparency Report reveals that 1,982 additional accounts were deleted for promoting terrorism.

The platform claimed to have also received complaints regarding sensitive pornographic content, intellectual property infringement, and sexual assault. In addition, according to the report, the company handled 43 grievance claims appealing account suspension. 

Last month, Twitter removed close to 60,200 accounts after receiving 1,088 complaints. 

Every month, the social networking site—recently acquired by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk—releases statistics on the actions taken in response to reported posts. 

Musk has stated that the social media firm would establish a “content moderation council,” and any significant content determinations or account reinstatements would occur after such a group has convened.
