Twitter Finishes Safety Road Map, Drags Waluigi’s Name Through the Mud

Today, Twitter reached an important milestone in its work to curb harassment on its platform. Last year, the company announced a road map for features and penalties that it would enact in order to make things less toxic — that include unverifying some users, purging others, and updating its violation-reporting systems.

Let’s just hope that now, having been found guilty of Twitter crime, Waluigi has not been radicalized.
