June 28, 2018 / David Cohen

Twitter announced several updates in its efforts to thwart “inauthentic accounts, spam and malicious automation,” highlighted by requiring email addresses or phone numbers when new accounts are established. Yoel Roth, who works on application-programming interface policy and public trust for Twitter, and vice president of trust and safety Del Harvey wrote in a blog post that the social network will work with its Trust and Safety Council and other non-governmental organizations to ensure that people in high-risk environments where anonymity is important are not affected.
