The Twitter news is again making headlines, the leading social media site failed to protect women rights on its platform, according to Amnesty International; an International organization of Human Rights.
The latest twitter news, that was surfacing nowadays was the Twitter users’ attraction towards fake news. But the latest report by Amnesty International brought Twitter in hot water, again.
The “trending” twitter news won’t benefit the site, this time:
The non-governmental organization that focuses on Human Rights declared the leading social media platform as a ‘toxic place,” for women.
Unlike Facebook and Instagram, Twitter isn’t restricted to just teenage entertainment factor, but Twitter has now acquired an important position in millions of peoples life.
Not only celebrities but politicians, activists, writers, journalist, and other renowned personalities use this platform to inform, educate and tweet their point of view to the public.
Generally, a powerful platform like this is expected to circulate genuine news, promote the betterment of society and most importantly, protect and ensure human rights.
Like we said important people from major sectors of life becomes the trending twitter news with their single tweets. Just like that, women belonging to major or minor sectors of life can be found on Twitter as well.
Rather than being a powerful tool, Twitter violated women rights:
“We believe in free expression and think every voice has the power to impact the world,” reads Twitter’s tagline.
By declaring itself as an influential platform, Twitter should be a powerful tool for women. Instead of making the platform secure and source to encourage women empowerment, Twitter is used to abuse, breach and violate women rights.
According to the report, “Twitter is failing in its responsibility to respect women’s rights online by inadequately investigating and responding to reports of violence and abuse in a transparent manner.”
