The violation of the Twitter Rules or of the Terms of Service can be a serious thing. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of spam or abusive content, so I refuse to pretend that it’s OK or to look in the other way.

Twitter is supposed to be fun, a way of staying connected and informed, so why not reporting all these? Yes, you can always choose to report any Tweet on Twitter and this includes Tweets in your home timeline, the Notifications or Discover tabs, or in Twitter Search.

Here’s how to do it:

How to Report a Tweet for Violations:

  1. Navigate to the Tweet you’d like to report;
  2. Click or tap the More icon;
  3. Then, select Report;
  4. If you select the option ”They’re being abusive or harmful”, Twitter will ask you to provide more information about the issue you’re reporting. Don’t hesitate to do that;
  5. Once you’ve submitted your report, Twitter will give you more recommendations for additional actions you can take to improve your Twitter experience.

How to Report a Direct Message for Violations:

  1. Tap the Direct Message conversation;
  2. Go to the Message that you want to report;
  3. Tap and hold the Message;
  4. Up next, choose the Flag from the menu that pops up;
  5. Select Flag as spam or Mark as abusive.

Is there an entire conversation using on the Android app that you’d like to report? Just follow the steps from below:

How to Report a Full conversation for Violations:

  1. Find the Direct Message conversation you’d like to report;
  2. Swipe left on it;
  3. Up next, all you have to do is to tap the same flag icon;
  4. Select Flag as spam or Mark as abusive.

After reporting the Message or conversation, this will be deleted from your Messages inbox. Even if these Reported Messages will disappear for good and cannot be recovered, I have a feeling that you don’t even want that.

And I must also tell you that reporting a Tweet or a message does not automatically result in the user being suspended, but at least someone will be watching, checking and taking even this measure, if necessary.
