Twitter has become a lightning rod for controversy in recent years, as some users have propagated disinformation and other poisonous content on the platform. Before being banned from Twitter after the Jan. 6 incident at the Capitol last year, former President Donald J. Trump routinely used the platform to criticize and inflame. In order to deal with unanticipated scenarios, the organization has been compelled to adopt policies on the fly on several occasions.
