Twitter is full of transphobic and abusive accounts that target our trans* and intersex communities, making Twitter a hard place to be. We implore twitter to more rigorously moderate their platform.
Why is this important?
It is vital that tran* and intersex people are not subject to abuse and harassment. Twitter should be a safe and supportive platform for all to use.
At present, abuse is poorly moderated, with abusive accounts running rampant. Reports are not adequately handled and in the rare occasions reports are taken seriously, banned accounts return using VPNs. Rules around restricting permissions of new accounts for a period of a month when they are first created would deter abusers.
All in all, action is needed to make Twitter safe for all and to rid it of toxicity.
