Twitter is working on offering more insights into the action taken on information requests, rule violations, misinformation campaigns, and more through the Transparency Center site, which has been converted into an interactive extension of its regular transparency reports.
“In 2020, it is more important than ever that we shine a light on our own practices, including how we enforce the Twitter Rules, our ongoing work to disrupt global state-backed information operations, and the increased attempts by governments to request information about account holders. […] We have reimagined and rebuilt our biannual Twitter Transparency Report site to become a comprehensive Twitter Transparency Center. Our goal with this evolution is make our transparency reporting more easily understood and accessible to the general public.”
This will give access to more particular elements of the Twitter Transparency Report, with various dedicated element sections of enforcement.

Twitter got a 47% rise in the actions taken against the accounts violating rules within the period, witch huge increment in the penalties because of abuse and hateful conduct. Also, Twitter removed the 50% more content as compared to the previous reporting frame.
